Canoe Trail Outdoor Kids Party

Experience a special birthday party with a difference! Canoe Trail birthday parties involve fun and games on the water or outdoor activities at our riverside outdoor center.

We love to see kids enjoying their special day with friends in the great outdoors taking part in adventurous things. The perfect way to make lasting memories! The bonus is that it's a good way to burn off excess energy by paddling, jumping in, and exploring the river in Kempston. An additional benefit is the ‘digital detox’ away from screen time in the beautiful tree-lined Victorian embankment or at our riverside outdoor centre in Kempston. Parents can follow on the river bank and grab pictures of the activities to share memories afterward.

Our Giant Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) is a firm favourite amongst teenage parties. We also offer climbing and bouldering parties, and of course one of the all time favourtes our bushcraft  activities, and not to forget our teen SUP birthday parties. Chose from the 4 party options to make the birthday a truly memorable day.

"I booked my Son's 8th birthday party to do canoeing with his friends and last minute they even got to use the Zorb. All children absolutely enjoyed the morning and said it was the best party they had attended. The Instructor was great with the end of the session they got to jump into the river which was even more fun! Thank you..."
