Canoeing

People Canoeing The River Derwent is a good canoeing venue offering flat water within Darley Park. Choose from taster sessions, which give you an introduction to canoeing, to courses where you can develop a real interest in paddling. Accreditation is available. Alternative venues may be used depending on water conditions and the needs of the group.

Open Canoeing

The ultimate teamwork activity – young people work together in the same boat in pairs or in threes. Health and safety starts with the safe lifting of the boats to the river and continues throughout the session.

On the water, out of their 'comfort zone', young people learn in groups, and individually, how to canoe. Success can only be achieved when they work together, using good communication skills and practising their new-found canoe techniques. Participants also enjoy playing games to develop these skills.

Ratio: One instructor to eight participants. 1, 2 or 6 sessions.
