Kayaking Courses

Longcraig offers BCU 2 and 3 star courses, which are aimed at getting Scouts and Explorers qualified to gain proficiency badges. We are happy to discuss custom courses for groups, subject to a minimum number of 3 people and availability of staff.

Please contact Regional Scout HQ to note interest and someone will contact you to discuss your requirements.

Adults (or those 14 and over) who wish to train towards BCU 2 and 3 star are also requested to note interest and we will advise them when a suitable course will be run.

For further information see Longcraig information.

Assessing Learning

Module 25 Assessing Learning is being considered.  Please contact Ken Thomson directly if you are interested in, or have people waiting to be, Training Advisers or Nights Away Assessors. We intend to run a Module 25 during May to meet this perceived need. Please contact Ken to express an interest at this stage. A convenient date will be agreed to suit most applicants.
