Kayak Birthday Party

A birthday party with a bit of excitment thrown in!

Your party kayaking session will last for about an hour and a half, and then if you wish you can relax with your friends and enjoy a picnic by the river.

After meeting your instructor you will be given a quick introduction to the equipment and safety briefing, then it's onto the water! You will enjoy a combination of playing group games and some skills challenges. The group will usually take a short river trip too!


Recommended age


8 years up (approx) at Leamington*

10 years up (approx) at Warwick


*We can take children from age 6 up if they are keen, but we do charge a supplement of £20 for groups of up to 8, so that we can put an extra member of staff on the water with them.


Venues

 

Kayak parties are available at both Leam Boat Centre and Warwick Boats.

Leamington is better for younger children as there is a shallow boating lake to start off in. We can also take larger groups there, as we have more kayaks at Leamington.

At Warwick you can take a short paddle to see the castle from the river, but as you'll go straight out onto the river, we can only take groups from age 10 upwards, and a maximum of 8 children.

Birthday Party  

"Great fun! Kids had a wonderful time. Instructor (libby?) was brilliant with the kids.. allowed them to be manic whilst keeping control... the climbing on boats seemed to be the talk of school next day!

Would highly recommend. Bob."

"We celebrated my daughter's 12th birthday on Saturday. What fun the 12 children had! Kayaking skills, splashing, games and the highlight? The rope swing! Ben and Callum were great with the children and there were lots of smiles and laughter. All the staff on site were incredibly friendly & helpful. Thank you all so much."

wonderful 27 Oct 2015

"Thank you so much for making my son's party on Saturday such a wonderful event. Despite being cold when they got out, the children had a wonderful time (even the one who got out!!). One enjoyed it so much, his Mum is planning water sports for next summer! They will all be better kayakers now, and if we go on the water as a family, my son is now insisting that he has his own kayak from now on instead of sharing with Mum! My only sadness is that the poor old parents were so busy preparing the food and transporting the goods from the car miles away that they didn't get to see it all!! I am also sorry I got lost trying to find you in the beginning and lost them some time, but I don't think they really noticed! Hopefully we will see you all again sometime, when we might pay you a visit as a family (when the warmer weather comes, of course!)"

"Just wanted to say what a fantastic afternoon my son had for his birthday yesterday. Ruth, Sam and Libby were brilliant with them all and very patient and I apologise to all the staff at how loud the boys were getting changed, I think they were very excited and ready for the pizza! All went extremely well and even when the panic of having forgotten the candles one of the staff came to our rescue along with a lighter. A lot of the parents have commented what a brilliant idea for a party it was and with it being such a lovely sunny afternoon it just added to the whole experience. Please pass on our grateful thanks to everyone, we will certainly be back in the summer hols for a bit more kayaking!"

best party ever 28 May 2014

review by Ginny Marsh

"Thanks to everyone at the Leam Boat Centre for providing my 12 year old daughter with the best party she ever had. It does sound like the instructor had his work cut out with 7 twelve year old girls, and one wild eight year old. we might be returning next year for my 15 year old daughter. Really! It wasn't too expensive, either. A few parents are interested in having their daughters parties there. All the staff were helpful and kind."

"Please would you pass on my 'thank you' to Catherine and Andy who ran Scarlett's 9th Birthday party this afternoon. Everyone said what an amazing party it was, and the children loved it. The said it was the best party they have ever been to. The parents were all impressed at how the instructors ran the party, and amazed at what you got them to do. The certificate at end was fantastic, thank you so much, I really enjoyed the day."

Everyone enjoyed themselves! 29 Mar 2014

"My son had a birthday party at Leamington this very morning:14 children - mostly boys - plus my husband and I. Most were first time kayakers. They all had a fantastic time: aided very much by the friendly but firm approach of the instructor (Yannig) and his able assistant (Henry). The safety stuff was done quickly and efficiently; we got out onto the river quickly enough to satisfy those who were not first timers and the water polo was the crowning glory of the party. All the kids enjoyed themselves and Tom is looking forward to his Paddlepassport course. All the parents were very impressed too. Definitely would recommend it to anyone, especially for people with boys as it is active and offers a good level of challenge - no-one could say they were bored!"
