      EVENT DETAILS
      Venturing Out CIC ASN Adventurous Activities Provision - Paddlesports

      Come and join us for a Paddlesports Session at Musselburgh Lagoons. You will be able to try out kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and have lots of fun in the water. This is a family based session where everyone can come and take part and share in the experience in a safe and supported environment.  We have morning and afternoon sessions available on either the 16th or 30th June, with space for 6 families at each session.  These sessions are for children with additional support needs, living in East Lothian, and their families. They are suitable for children who are unable to access mainstream activities.  This provision is supported by East Lothian Council and is run in partnership with East Lothian Council's Outdoor Learning Service.  FAQs Is there a minimum age requirement? This session is suitable for children aged 6 and above but must be 8 to paddle alone.  How many siblings can we bring to the session? In order to keep the sessions manageable, no more than 2 siblings can attend with the main participant What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is a car park at Musselburgh Lagoons. You access it from the road access to Levenhall Links Leisure Park from the B1348. The access road is quite bumpy so please drive carefully.  Do we need to bring anything? We will provide all of the clothing and equipment required for getting on the water but please bring a swimsuit or swim shorts to put on under the wetsuit. We have waterproofs that can also be worn instead of a wetsuit. Remember to pack a towel and warm clothes for afterwards.  Suncream is recommended on warm and sunny days.  I am worried about getting my child into a boat? We have a  range of adapted seats that can be fitted to the boats to make the experience easier or you and your child. Our team of experienced volunteers will always be on hand to help and support you on the day. We are happy to discuss any concerns in advance - please email claire@venturingout.org.uk  Are there toilet facilities? There are minimal facilities at the Lagoons but we have changing tents and portable potty toilets. Tickets are sold out for this event - what can I do? If the tickets are sold out, please email claire@venturingout.org.uk and you will be added to a waiting list. The name at the top of this list will be offered first refusal on any spaces that come available. This list will be offered first refusal on the next dates that are released.
