Our staff team have been gearing up for a really busy summer period. The guys have planned out the whole break and you can see the complete programme at However, this didn't stop our team from their usual learning and development.

Last week, after a busy preparation period, a team of staff and KYM volunteers embarked upon their BCU Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Paddlesports. The course was very intense and the actual assessment lasted for 4 days (most of which was spent in the water). The team have learnt many new skills such as group management, health and safety, coaching skills, etc and have had to become totally proficient in sports such as, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and raft building.

The course was a major success and all participants have now been fully inducted into the staff team at the KYM Outdoor Education Centre on Lord Derby's Estate. In total we have trainined 6 staff, 1 young volunteer and 2 adult volunteers. They will now spend the summer providing positive activities for KYM members from across the area and we couldn't be happier.
