Kayak Kids

Kayak Kids

In the crystal clear, thermal waters of the New Bath Hotel outdoor pool Matlock Canoe Club have been offered a unique opportunity to teach kids to kayak. Kayak Kids is ideally suited to children aged 7 to 11 years (school year 2 to year 6). Sessions will be structured with warm-up games for the whole group, followed by small group instruction of paddling skills and finishing off with some more games.
