CBK's Academy is our kids club for 11-14s, featuring a great mix of kayaking, paddleboarding, coasteering and beach games. To build confidence in new environments and conditions, we'll also take some longer journeys and get a little more adventurous in where we explore. Kids can also choose to work through their Paddle Power awards at CBK's Academy and achieve their first British Canoeing certificates.
Sessions typically take place in Cullercoats Bay, a sheltered tidal cove, ideal for developing skills on the water.
When is it?
Sessions run as follows:
- Sundays (until 9 Sep): 9.30am-11.30am
- Sundays (from 10 Sep): 12.30pm-2.30pm
- Tuesdays: 2.30pm-4.30pm (during summer holidays)
- Do parents stay on site during the session?
We ask that parents/guardians help with changing during the first half hour. After that you are free to nip home, grab a cuppa and put your feet up! All we ask is that one parent/guardian be contactable and be no more than 10 mins away from us during the session in case of emergency.
We do have The Snug upstairs for parents too, with self-service tea, coffee and snacks. Please do make use of the space if you'd like to.
How much does it cost?
All kids clubs cost £15 per session, per child. This includes all equipment, instruction and a hot chocolate or squash after the session. You can book four sessions for 5% off or book six sessions or more for 10% off, however please book by phone or in-store for these discounts.
