A unique opportunity for students to paddle along one of the classic waterways of the UK
An alternative to our Mountain Expeditions, our river journeys provide a unique opportunity for students to paddle along one of the classic waterways of the UK. Where they can stop for lunch breaks along the river banks & observe a variety of wildlife in its natural surroundings.
In addition to learning how to paddle and manage a 2 or 3 person canoe, students will have responsibility for planning and managing each day of their expedition.
These demanding expeditions encourage the development of leadership, teamwork & communication skills. As students learn how to adapt to their new environment they not only learn how to overcome adversity but also cultivate a sense of self-reliance, resilience and independence. The performance and safety of students will be carefully facilitated by our experienced leaders, review sessions will re-enforce the transferable life skills learnt and developed on the programme.
Ultimately though the expeditions are designed to be exciting, fun and rewarding Accommodation is a mix of camping and bunk barns depending on the itinerary
During each expedition students develop a range of transferable life skills, including;
- Self and team resilience
- Leadership & teamwork skills
- Problem solving
- Decision making
- Fitness and nutrition
- Time management
- Environmental responsibility
