Youth resources and activities

We’ve created a range of resource and activity packs to make it easier for young people from all walks of life to access and enjoy the benefits of the waterways.

School visit to Tees Barrage Seal spotting at Tees Barrage

The packs each cover a different waterways-related theme. They include information about the topic, as well as lots of ideas for activities you can do online, at home, in small groups and with our support.

We'll be uploading new packs for you to download during winter 2020/21 so check back soon for more.

Staying safe

Some of our activities involve getting together with other people or visiting your local canal or river. Please follow national and local government guidance at all times. Consider saving the activity for a later date if there are lockdown restrictions in your area.

If you're visiting the waterways, please keep your distance from both other people and moored boats. There may be people living aboard who are self-isolating or shielding.
