Themed around wellbeing, the weekend will balance indoor and outdoor activities including yoga, forest walks, arts and crafts and canoeing. Everything has been designed to leave you feeling refreshed and energised.

We will be staying in Thorpe Woodland’s new escape pods: comfortable, cosy and warm, the pods are perfect backdrop to getting back to nature and taking a break from the hustle and bustle. Camping facilities include campfire circles, outdoor sinks with hot water and modern shower/toilet blocks. We will be making full use of the campfires in the evening, to not only cook our food but to sit around and toast marshmallows.

As ever, VICTA trips are no holiday; you will have a relaxing yet busy weekend, not only trying new activities and experiences but meeting new people too.

Go Outrigger Canoeing!

Go Outrigger Canoeing on the 16 Sept!

GO OUTRIGGER CANOEING

An outrigger canoe is Polynesian in origin.  It is a stable six-person boat that is paddled on both sides.

We will be running a session for beginners with visual impairments on 16th September at 10.15am.  If you want to bring a friend or someone to accompany you they are very welcome.   The session will last about 60 mins.

 WHERE:   Royal Outrigger Canoe Club, Trowlock Way, Teddington TW11 9QY

 WHEN:  Sunday September 16th at 10.15am

What you need to know

  • You must be able to swim a minimum of 25 yards and must be over 18 years of age.
  • No special clothing is required.  We recommend you wear running or sportswear (not jeans) with a pair of light trainers or water shoes.  A waterproof top such as a cagoule is ideal in case of wet weather. You will also need a towel and a complete change of clothing for afterwards.
  • The club will provide canoes, paddles and buoyancy aids.

It is essential that you book a place on the course so that we can ensure we accommodate your needs.  Bookings will be on a “first come first served” basis.
