Summer Programme

Every summer we run an activity programme for children aged between 8 and 16 years old. There are courses in a variety of activities both on and off the water and for those children who can't make up their mind what to try we also run a popular multi-activity course.

We tend to run courses in the following activities:

  • Sailing
  • Kayaking
  • Canoeing
  • Windsurfing
  • Climbing
  • Biking
  • Multi-activity 

Our courses are graded to suit a range of age and ability. Please observe this when making applications.

  • Level 1 - for beginners and those with a little previous experience.
  • Level 2 - for those who have completed all the skills of Level 1 and are ready for the next challenge.
  • Level 3 - for experienced students only. Good results at Level 2 are essential before moving to Level 3.
  • Level 4 - good results at Level 3 are essential before moving to Level 4.

We offer minibus pick-ups around West Lothian for some of our courses - please check the programme for details. Full day courses run from 0930 until 1600, half day either 0930 until 1230 or 1330 until 1630. We also provide an early drop off, late pick up service allowing parents to drop children at the centre from 0830 and pick them up any time between 1600 and 1730. Most weekends throughout the summer we also run family activity sessions.
