New Premises and Watersports Base in Lake District

We have just moved premises to Lowick Old School. This enables us to offer more activities on our site such as Archery and Problem solving aswell as having meeting and conference space in the old School hall.

We also have a great new watersports base at the Waterhead Hotel Coniston, with changing and toilet facilities, from where we run Canoeing, Kayaking, Raftbuiling and Sailing.

The Water sports base has our RIB (Powered Safety Boat) on site now too,  for safety on windier days and to enable fantastic canoe sailing journeys for business team building activity sessions.

We are very excited about the prospects at the new site with its classrooms for training and especially for our Outdoor Instructor Training Course.

We ran a succesfull pilot Instructor Training Course over the winter 09/10 with 3 of 5 students able to find employment afterwards in either a trainee (apprenticeship) role or Seasonal Instructor, and the remaining 2 students one going back to teaching with new skills, and the other joining the Army.
