The youth river running program is a superb program. It has given my son an experience he most likely wouldn’t have had otherwise. He has learnt really useful river skills and is now looking forward to developing these further next year. His confidence has certainly grown since joining the program. It’s also great to see youngsters supporting each other. During the last session one of the older students offered to support my son down the hardest section of the river should he want to run it. It’s just amazing that Cumbrian youngsters have the opportunity to paddle with others of a similar age in their local area.
