Get your permit to canoe and kayak


We want as many young people as possible to have adventurous activities and gaining the skills needed to lead them is one way!

On Saturday 23rd September at Hawley Lake, Minley, Hampshire, we're running an assessment day so you can gain your Kayaking or Canoeing permit for B1 waters.

Attendees will need to work to the Kayak Assessment Checklist and be compliant with the POR rules for water activities, a recap on the POR rules will also be given on the assessment day. Applicants will need to be at the old BCU 3* level for flat water strokes or alternatively have passed the BC Explore Award.

The day will run from 0900 to 1700 and you will need to bring with you a kayak or canoe plus your paddling equipment, together with a packed lunch. Showers and changing facilities will be available on site. There may be a possibility to hire equipment on the day, please contact me if you require this.

If you are interested in attending the assessment please send me an email with your name, telephone number and scout membership number and I will be in touch with further details. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
