School and Outdoor Ed Programs


Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the number of schools who are offering canoe and kayak programs as part of their Outdoor Education Programs, or as extra-curricular activities. However, many schools find it impossible to access qualified and high quality instruction, due to the high costs. We offer programs, tailor-made to suit and to your budget. We have over 50 years experience in all types of canoe and kayak education, including elite sport coaching. Now encompassing AFK ( Andrew Farrance Kayaking) we can offer even more to your school.

All programs are designed and created to meet the exact aims and outcomes of each individual school.

We tailor each program to meet what you want your students to experience on camp.  We can supply highly qualified instructors for your program, from environmentally based programs to journey based excursions, or even certification of instructors within your outdoor education program. All gear hire and costs are included in any program, and we are competitive on price. From Flat water to whitewater, Canoeing, whitewater kayaking, rafting or sledding - Canoes Plus pride themselves on offering high quality and safe and enjoyable experiences for schools and public. Our courses meet or exceed industry standards for instructor ratios and risk management. As Canoeing and kayaking has a great impact on self awareness and confidence in young adults and children, it is a great inclusion into any school program.

We offer programs locally or wilderness based programs - tailored to suit. From Flat water to Whitewater, also including other disciplines such as hiking or biking. Talk to us to plan your next adventure.
