Kayaking on the Derwent

Published on 05/05/2016 by jion.

On Tuesday 3rd May, Scouts from 1st Chopwell Scout Group enjoyed the adventure of kayaking as they took on a new challenge on the river Derwent.

Thanks to the leaders at 5th Tyne Sea Scouts, our Scouts enjoyed an hour long session of Canoeing and Kayaking, something which some had never done before. One parent also joined in and found love again for an activity he once done as a youngster.

Over the coming months, the Scouts have decided that they want to do more Kayaking and work towards their paddle sports activity badge. You can see some of the photos from the activity below.
