Kayaking Workshop for Kids

Fun and exciting outdoor activities that promote a physical and mental state of wellbeing are important for children of all ages, who have a lot of energy to expend. Outdoor activities are also a great way to get your kids to put their mobile devices down, stop playing their video games, and turn the TV off for a while. That’s why Holiday Academy offers exhilarating kayaking for kids to get out there, enjoy each other’s company, learn something new, and have a blast all at the same time.

Kayaking is one of the best and most fun ways to get children of all ages into the great outdoors to have some fun while doing something a little bit different for a change. And they can do it all while taking in the big blue sky above them and the calm water beneath them. Plus, kayaking is a great activity for kids who want to get active and get some exercise without feeling like they are working out.

Physical activity, such as kayaking, is vitally important to the growth and development of kids of every age. We take kids out in groups so that they can feel comfortable and confident, and they learn under the guidance of skilled instructors who put safety first while teaching your child about all of the wonderful things that Mother Nature has to offer.

Canoeing/Kayaking activities and excursions are available for the 8+ age group through a local partnership with Pirate Castle, which is a Camden canal-side community project/youth club. We will walk the children there and drop them off at 10.30 am, picking them up at 3.30 pm so that you don’t have to brave the queue. However, if you need longer hours, we also provide wrap-around care, if required, back at Holiday Academy.

We love offering this exhilarating yet relaxing outdoor activity to the older age group. The children join with those already at the Pirate Castle scheme and have so much fun in the water! It really is an unforgettable experience, and many of the children who participate absolutely can’t wait to come back and do it all over again.

Also, when your kids need a rest from all of that kayaking and canoeing on the water, they can opt to participate in other fun activities, such as fishing trips, canal boat trips, and climbing wall trips.

Pirate Castle even offers residential courses away, along with day trips out to the Thames. It’s also possible for children to complete all of their kayaking qualifications, and they can take it as seriously as they wish or just enjoy the social side of the kayaking workshop for kids.
