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 we provide 2 instructors and all the paddling kit for coach-led games and activities. The highlight is jumping in at the end!

Typically we bring a mix of kit appropriate for the age of the participants and outdoor conditions. Our instructors have a wide range of training and experience of mixing fun learning sessions with games. They can also offer important life skills lessons such as teamwork, decision making, communication and risk management.

We can provide a variety of themes including;

  • * Pirates and explorers
  • * Canoe, kayak, and SUP races
  • * Raft building
  • * Hang Ten Challenge
  • * Canoe Journey
  • * Canoe tug of war
  • * Woodland nature treasure hunt
  • * Woodland campfire cooking
  • * Woodland shelter building and bushcraft
  • * Woodland river crossing challenge


Our private woodland is a popular party venue. We can provide a mix of activities including:

  • * Campfire hot chocolate and marshmallows
  • * Team Challenges such as nightline and spiders web
  • * Sweetie treasure hunt
  • * Bushcraft activity like fire lighting
