Event description
Safe & Supported watersports sessions with Venturing Out. Fun and splashy session on the water trying out kayaks, canoes and paddleboards!

About this event

Come and join us for a Paddlesports Session at Musselburgh Lagoons. You will be able to try out kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and have lots of fun in the water. This is a family based session where everyone can come and take part and share in the experience in a safe and supported environment. 

We know that recent times will have been very difficult for you all so we are very excited to be out onto the water with you again and having some fun!

All sessions will follow required COVID-19 guidelines and we are happy to chat with you beforehand about any worries and concerns.

  • If any member of the family is displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, they should not attend

Please Note - Ideally we need an adult on the water from each family. We understand that this is not possible for all - if you are not able to go on the water with your child, please contact us after booking to discuss. We can look at the level of ability across all sessions and move you to a session where we are able to give your child more support on the water.

We have Thursday evening, Friday afternoon and weekend sessions available.

These sessions are for children with additional support needs, living in East Lothian, and their families. They are suitable for children who are unable to access mainstream activities. 

This provision is supported by East Lothian Council and is run in partnership with East Lothian Council's Outdoor Learning Service.
