Learning outcomes

Our watersports instructors know how to bring out the best in each individual. We can focus on improving teamwork, developing a particular skill or improving confidence on the water.

Travelling abroad delivers improvements in many other areas such as self-reliance, taking responsibility, becoming more independent and developing a positive attitude.

All group members will build confidence by challenging themselves and overcoming fears with the support of their friends, leaders and our staff.

Girls’ and Boys’ Brigades groups learn about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and keeping active.
