Kids Parties

Canoe Trail birthday parties involve fun and games on the water or in the woodland. Our Giant XL Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) is a firm favourite amongst teenage parties. Enjoy a special birthday party with a difference.

Children Parties

Enjoying their special day with friends in an outdoor space doing adventurous things is the perfect way to make lasting memories. It is a good way to burn off excess energy by paddling, jumping in and enjoying the River in Bedford. An additional benefit is the ‘digital detox’ away from screen time in the beautiful tree lined Victorian embankment or in our private woodland. Parents can follow on the river bank and grab pictures of the activities to share memories afterward. A simple BBQ at the Longholme Café is a very popular catering option.


We deliver a water based party with a mix of canoes / kayaks or SUP’s for a Bedford based party. This normally runs for two hours and includes a sweetie treasure hunt. We provide 2 instructors and all the paddling kit for coach-led games and activities and also jumping in at the end. Typically we bring a mix of kit appropriate for the age of the participants and conditions. Our instructors have a wide range of experience of mixing fun learning sessions with games and working on important life skills such as teamwork, decision making, communication and risk management.
