Gold Open DofE Canoeing Programme 2022

The two day training session will be on the river Severn near Shrewsbury with our fantastic instructors and accommodation being in the form of camping due to COVID-19 restrictions, each participant will have their own tent or bivvy (we like participants to arrive on the Sunday evening the day before the programme starts ideally), then the two day practice expedition will also be on the river Severn and the qualifying expedition will be on the river Wye at the end of August. Anyone can come and join these programmes and they can do this independently. The costs below include most of the equipment needed for the award such as tents, stoves, etc. We don’t supply food or trangia gas but if you have any questions please contact us on 01600 890027 or email us at [email protected]
