Beach swimming

We are lucky enough to have access to some great beaches, and when the weather and sea conditions are appropriate young people can have the wonderful experience of getting close to nature and the environment by dipping their toes into the sea. On the coast of England this traditional activity is “character building” and due to the dynamic nature of the coastal environment we only provide this activity when we are confident that the conditions are safe, and all water activity takes place under direct supervision.
