Fancy doing something different for your Gold Expedition? Why not consider doing your expedition by canoe. Our Open Expeditions by Canoe are a unique way of doing your DofE Expedition on some of the UK’s picturesque rivers. We have an opportunity for individuals or small groups to join together with a small group from an all girls school to complete your Gold Expedition by canoe.
Previous canoeing knowledge and experience is not required as we will teach progressive training from basic canoeing skills, including how to be safe when on or near the water. Our Open Expedition programmes include a comprehensive training programme over 2 days that will take you from the raw beginner to a competent paddler, with the opportunity to gain your 1-star Canoeing Award along the way. This is then followed by a 3-day Practice Expedition, where you will further develop your skills and confidence on a journey along the River Soar & Trent.
– Training and Supervision from our team of qualified and friendly canoe coaches
– Group Equipment (tents, stoves, fuel, maps and a group first aid kit)
– Canoeing Equipment (canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids, throw lines)

Training will take place at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham on Sat 30th – Sun 31st March 2019 with the Practice Expedition on the River Soar and Trent from Mon 1st – Wed 3rd April 2019.
