Debdale Outdoor Centre are hosting a fantastic free week-long course for young people aged 6 to 18. The course runs every Monday to Friday throughout the school holidays and children will be able to take part in many fun outdoor water sports activities.

Suitable for all abilities, this free course is available for children who are eligible for free school meals.

From kayaking and sailing to raft building, this is a brilliant opportunity for young people to have a go at something they haven’t tried before. All sessions will be delivered by qualified coaches and a healthy lunch will also be served to all young people who attend.

Interested? Make sure you book a free place for your child in advance. Also, all of the activities take place outside so make sure that your child wears clothes that they do not mind getting wet. Also, remember to pack some spare dry clothes (including underwear), trainers and a towel too.
