Youth Canoe Club

canoe - Up to 16 people


Woodmill is a pillar of the Paddlesports community and a great place to interact with other paddlers. This is partly because of our location but mostly because we love to paddle. Every person who joins our paddling community will be given a paddler development log book. This is to help guide your development and set you up as a proficient paddler able to go off and explore on your own.

Don’t tell anyone…but Woodmill is definitely Southampton’s best-kept secret!

To those who drive past it, it probably just looks like any other old brick building. But step inside this converted former mill and it’s like walking through the wardrobe into Narnia. With an unexpected tranquil haven full of wonder and surprise (but without the lions or witches, obviously).

Aimed at developing children who can paddle confidently, our Youth Canoe Club sessions are fully supervised by one of our qualified instructors. The sessions are structured around the paddler development programme and introduce children to all Paddlesport disciplines.

If you're already a member, please send us a message on Facebook or email and a member of the bookings team will be able to book your session for you.

Please Note:

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are offering COVID Secure activities to the public.

To ensure that we can provide a safe environment for all participants and our staff, we are implementing the following procedures;

  1. We ask that you not attend if your child, or anyone in the household, are showing symptoms of COVID-19.
  2. We will coordinate all activities so your children will join your group straight away after sign in.
  3. We will ask all children to wash their hands upon arrival, in between activity sessions and prior to eating.
  4. We will offer activities that do not require high physical support / physical contact.
  5. We will be deep cleaning twice daily as a minimum standard.

What to bring

We recommend you bring a change of clothes and a bottled drink. If you have your own clothing, feel free to bring this along. Otherwise, all specialist kit and equipment is provided.


If you've paddled before, you're in the right place! If not, why not try our Kayak or Canoe hire?
