White Water Kayak Weekend

This is a fun filled weekend away, usually in North Wales (but always dependant on water levels).

This weekend can be either training or assessment towards British Canoeing's new Kayak White Water Award - if you have the relevent previous experience then you can be assessed throughout the weekend, if not then come and enjoy a weekend packed with training!

The first day will be at an easy grade 2 venue, practicing all the basic moving water skills. The second day will be a slightly harder river run which will give you a real taste of spending a whole day on moving water. Those that need it will get their adrenaline fix as you push your skills into the next league!

By the end of the weekend, you will have the skills and confidence to get out and have fun on grade 2 rivers. We will also look at various rescue skills relevant to that environment.

This course is non-residential. We usually meet on Saturday morning, and stay in a Youth hostel or bunk house Saturday night, so you are welcome to join us if you like, or to make your own arrangements if you'd prefer.

This course is for you if: You have done a bit of moving water (e.g. Symonds Yat or the Nene course) and enjoyed it, and would like to push yourself to the next level. Or you feel you are paddling at the level for the White Water Award and would like the certificate.


£139 if you have your own boat and kit
£159 if you'd like to use one of our boats

"Recently did my first ever White Water Weekend. Absolutely amazing. It's great to have such faith in the instructors that we were up for anything - first down the Serpent's Tail on the River Dee! Sure, we got wet, but that's all part of the fun and the challenge. Thank you to the Team at CKT, I'm just about to sign up for the next one."

"If I had to sum up this weekend in one word it would have to be, awesome.
I would like to thank all the staff that attended and gave fantastic instruction and I've already booked myself onto the pool sessions to perfect my rolls.
The choice of venue gets 9 stars, good parking, changing rooms, good grub, they just needed a couple more toilets, oh and great white water.
The Instructors get 10 stars, great tuition without being pushy, easily approachable, great experience and good drinking buddies at the end of a hard days kayaking."
