At the end you will have completed the British Canoeing Start Award and, be on your way to a whole new way of spending your leisure time.
The course is run at Ellerton Park, near Scorton, North Yorkshire. This is a large flooded gravel pit, with good water quality, changing rooms and toilets are available. The link below will take you to the location page of their website for directions: www.ellertonpark.com/location
The cost is from £58 and includes all equipment, instruction and fee to use the lake. The course runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Please come dressed in warm comfortable clothing that dries easily. Bring waterproof jacket and trousers and a warm hat, don’t forget a drink and a snack. There is a good cafe not very far form the lake for lunch when you have finished.
