The River Canche - Level 3 Extended Diploma Year 1 & 2 Outdoor Activities Study Tour

Posted on 4th May 2015 in Sport & Outdoor Activities

13 Level 3 Extended Diploma in Outdoor Activities students have recently returned from a study tour to France where they spent 4 days camping in La Fontaine des Clercs.

The trip provided the students with the opportunity to train on the River Canche using canoes and kayaks.  Activities included an introduction to moving water, canoe and kayaking slalom courses, as well as white water rescue training.

As well as the opportunity to put their practical skills to the test, the trip counted towards part of their 3 star canoeing introduction and moving water training, as they progress towards their Level 1 British Canoe Union Coaching Certificate.

It was a very successful trip proving to be both physically demanding and fun!
