Winter Pool Sessions – Junior and Adults

Winter Pool Sessions are back! Using the fantastic Butlins pool, ECC will be hosting an Winter and Spring block of sessions for children and adults.

Whether you’re trying kayaking for the first time, or want to use the sessions to learn to roll, these sessions are suitable for all ages and abilities.

Where:          Butlins, Minehead

Timings:        19:30-20:15 Juniors  20:15-21:00 Adults

Prices:           Junior members £4  Adult members £5

Please note due to an increase in Junior membership and the limitations that come when operating in a swimming pool, we will be closing junior membership for the rest of our membership year and operating a waiting list system if new juniors would like to express an interest. New membership opens in April 2017.

We realise this may cause disappointment for those wanting to join as a junior but feel for safety reasons and to maintain quality sessions for our current junior membership this is a necessary step. 

What to wear: Swimwear, rash vest

What to bring: Your own kayak if you have one, but this must be completely spotless with no dirt or leaves to dirty the pool.

We provide: A range of kayaks. Please note that on busy evenings, we operate a ‘first come, first serve’ basis on kayaks and cannot guarantee that boats will be available for use.

Do we need to book? No need too book just turn up.

We look forward to seeing you
