£3 for a session


If you are aged between 9 – 18 and looking to try out adventurous activities, Shadwell Basin is offering females the opportunity to develop their confidence and learn new skills while having fun and making friends. We offer sessions in kayaking, canoeing, sailing, climbing and high ropes, mostly led by female staff. If you become a regular member, there are also day trips and residential trips away to test your skills in the real outdoors. If you are already a regular youth member, you can join these sessions for specific skills training and support- see Jan or Robyn for more information about this.

Participants must be aged between 9—18 years and be competent swimmers. For water sessions, a spare change of clothes is needed, with shoes that fully cover the foot (no sandals or flip flops). You must also bring a completed consent form with a parent’s signature to take part in activities.


For further information about the sessions, please contact Jan via email: or by telephone: 0207 481 4210
