Adventurous activities require instructors. Canoe Avon believes in training people to teach outdoor skills.
Most Canoe Avon skills are based round water activities; indeed we are starting one of the few Canoe lifeguard units in the UK.
Members will be encouraged to get their 3 star Award in Kayaking through training provided. This is a difficult award that will take about 2 years. You will also get lifesaving skills and first aid.
Most training involves getting wet and assessments involve getting very wet. Washing machines hate Canoe Avon!
To join you need to be 12 years old or over, before you’re a member we like to do a few sessions with you so you know us and we know you.
Water activities are very demanding, you need a strong determination. Canoe Avon is not an easy option but we get to do some really cool stuff!!
Parents are welcome to come and audit any activity done by Canoe Avon, talk to the instructors and satisfy themselves that it’s safe and well run. We encourage this as it’s always good to keep our instructors on their toes
