As a section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, all our camping events are open to Camping and Caravanning Club members (including Canoe-camping Club members) only. Anyone participating must be a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club before attending a meet.

Please remember to bring your Club membership cards to all club events, since we are required to check and record memberships are current.  We also need to record BRITISH CANOEING numbers for those who have them. Paddlers need to be a member of the Canoe-camping Club and/or one of Britain's paddlesport National Governing Bodies*.   These are needed to ensure that we are covered by the Club's and British Canoeing's insurance.
Canoeing and kayaking are ‘assumed risk’ ‘water contact’ activities, however serious accidents are very rare.
Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
All participants in club trips or meets do so at their own risk, and neither the Club nor its officers can accept any liability for loss or injury of any kind sustained whilst on a Club trip, meet or other activity.

Meets and Trips

From Thursday 14 April 2022
To Monday 18 April 2022

The Easter Meet is an expedition, where participants carry their tents, sleeping bags cooking equipment and food in their canoes/kayaks travelling down the river to a different campsite each day.

We also offer a Base camp for those who want to return to the same site each night.  Those opting for this approach will sort out among themselves car shuttles to return paddlers back to base each evening.

The journey this year on the River Thames starts at Long Wittenham on Good Friday and ends with a paddle downstream of Henley on Easter Monday.  There is a catered for Social on Easter Day.
