23 October: Half term activities at Wimbleball Lake
There is a packed programme of activities on offer at Wimbleball Lake this autumn half term (23-31 October).
‘Have a go’ sessions at Wimbleball Activity Centre, run by environmental charity South West Lakes, are a great way to try an activity for the first time with friends or family. The one to two-hour sessions are led by qualified instructors and are an ideal opportunity to gain basic skills and have fun.
Activities include archery, paddleboarding, sailing, windsurfing, high ropes and kayaking.
Two-hour family canoe adventures are led by experienced instructors and give participants the opportunity to learn the basic skills of canoeing, enjoy games and take in the incredible scenery. The sessions are suitable for ages 4+ and for all abilities.
Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets are provided for sessions on the water but participants need to bring suitable footwear, swimsuit and a towel.
You can also hire a variety of watersports equipment, launch your own craft and learn something new by taking part in an instructor-led session or simply explore the miles of footpaths and cycle ways, enjoy the play area or even extend your stay and camp.
All proceeds go towards protecting and enhancing the South West’s reservoirs and lakes.
