10am start for Chessington Cubs and Scouts
Thanks for signing up to the Kingston Scouts Canoe Club Fun session for Cubs and Scouts, please see above for a parental consent form which we will need from the start to keep on record. The swimming section should not rule out those who cannot swim 50m – it is simply so that the coaches and I can keep a slightly closer eye on those who may be weaker swimmers (buoyancy aids are provided for all).
The Session is 10.00 – 1.00 on Sunday 17th May.
Cost is £3/head/session.
There are some details of what to wear, etc here; http://kingstonscoutscc.org.uk/?page_id=685
It would also be prudent to have a quick read of some background info on Weils Disease, please note though that this is very rare and it’s more about promoting normal precautions such as covering cuts with a plaster and having a shower after canoeing; http://kingstonscoutscc.org.uk/?page_id=626
Can I also take this opportunity to mention that if your child wears glasses AND needs to wear them whilst canoeing then please do think about a glasses retainer
I hope that all this information helps, do feel free to contact me if you have any queries at all.
Kingston Scouts Canoe Club.
Canoeing activities made available to all Scouts regardless of background, ability or means.
