If you enjoyed the watersports at Parklife 2017 yesterday then why not further your paddle skills this summer at Milton Country Park?
This year Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust was awarded a grant through Sport England to develop canoe opportunities at Milton Country Park. We've now launched a programme of sessions for the summer to get you paddling in no time!
Quick Start Sessions
On Sundays from July 16th we'll have Quick Start canoe sessions running from 11am and 12.15 am which will give you an introduction to this versatile sport. Sessions are open to adults and children with a minimum age 8 (children under 10 must be accompanied in a boat by an adult).
Sessions are fun and friendly and designed for all abilities, whether you have no experience or want to refresh your skills on the water. You will learn the basics of canoeing, including safety, equipment and paddle strokes.
Skills & Journeys!
If you're keen to learn and experience canoeing with a difference and enjoy a real adventure on the water then why not try our Skills & Journeys course? This is a unique opportunity to learn the basics of canoeing with a half day course on the lake followed by a beautiful day journey along the river Cam (one day journey) or Little Ouse (overnight & camping)!
Our highly experienced and BCU qualified instructor, Joy of Adventure, teaches from the recognised BCU syllabus meaning you have the opportunity to earn your BCU one star or Paddle Power Passport (age 8-14), whilst enjoying an journey on a nearby river that'll leave you with great memories and new friendships!
Children aged 5 and over are welcome.
