Secondary schools and colleges can find a host of suitable activities at the lakes.
All staff and volunteers involved with young people and vulnerable adults undergo CRB checks and relevant training.
On land you can study the natural environment or local history. On the water you can learn a new sport including: sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. Social skills and confidence can grow as an additional benefit. Young people are encouraged to find an activity that suits them. Canadian canoes, rowing skiffs and gig rowing can provide a suitable platform for the less confident, whilst some people may prefer angling, archery or orienteering. We can help people find their own level in a safe location with a non-threatening atmosphere.
Team building is another popular activity, excellent for improving the effectiveness of people involved in competitive sports. To get the most from a visit many schools arrange for a half-day's outdoor activity at a watersports centre, combined with a half day's self-guided environmental study. There are lecture rooms for hire at Stithians, Roadford, Tamar Lakes, Siblyback or Wimbleball. Large groups can swap over between activities half way through the day. Our centres are licensed by AALA, RYA and BCU.
