Waterways Learning & Pirate Fun

London's waterways offer many unique opportunities for learning and adventure, both on and off the water. Our range of topical, interactive land-based activities are typically built in to a Multi-Activity Day programme to suit your group's requirements and desired learning outcomes.

Multi-Activity Days are perfect for groups of up to 30 participants and comprise up to 3 activities in rotation. Simply choose from the list below - or why not include a canal boat trip to give everyone a taste of life afloat and bring their learning alive? For older children (ages 8+) you could even include kayaking, canoeing or bell-boating to the mix for a real taste of adventure!

Options include:

Waterways Learning

*Canal Heritage - learn about how and why canals were built

* Life Afloat - learn what life's like on the canal, from the industrial revolution to the present

* Canal Environment - learn about the plants and animals who share our waterways and their environment

* Keeping Safe on the Waterways - learn how to spot the hazards and enjoy the canal safely

We are also available to attend your school assemblies or group meetings to introduce The Pirate Castle or give short talks on a range of canal and boating topics. Call us on 020 72676605 or email for more information.

Pirate Fun

* Flag making - historically, pirate flags were made up of iconic elements - together our young pirates decide on what their ship represents and how to depict it in their flag

* Devise your Pirate Charter - fun negotiation and discussion to draft the 'rules' of a pirate ship's crew

* Piratical Team Games - active team building, group-based cooperative games following a piratical theme

* Pirate ship building - understanding ships in the days of sail, and building their own simple model

... all hosted at our unique Pirate Castle in the heart of Camden Town!
