Are you looking for a summer activity to do in the great outdoors in Central Scotland during the summer holidays then look no further. Clackmannanshire Sports Development and the Peak at Stirling Sports Village offer an excellent variety of activities for children during the summer holidays but this is the only place near Stirling that you can learn to canoe and kayak in a warm safe fun environment.
CR CATS Canoe Club are offering canoeing and kayaking classes during the day for children aged 8-12 as well as open classes in the evening for adults and children aged 8+ during the school summer holidays in July and August.
We are less than 10 miles from Stirling and 3 miles from Alloa.
These are all being held at the Club site on the River Devon, Alva – see the “Contact and find us” page for directions.
All Equipment will be provided e.g. Kayaks, paddles, Buoyancy aids and helmets. We also have a limited supply of shorty wetsuits and water shoes which can be borrowed.
No previous experience is necessary but you must be able to swim.
