Activity taster sessions

Young people's activity taster sessions

Our taster sessions are for children and young people from 8 to 16 years. They allow you to try out an activity, without committing to a long-term course or the need for any experience. The activities take place at various coastal locations.

We're currently running taster sessions for climbing and tunnelling, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) and coasteering.

You can choose to do a half day taster session where you try one activity, or a full day where you try 2. You will need to bring a packed lunch if you choose to do a full day.

Taster session price

Each taster session costs £25.
