Join the Team

We are always looking for new Activity Leaders

If you would like join the team, you will need to have SIS10 Level 2 or above qualifications in Canoeing or Sailing, or have your power boat licence. Training can be arranged for those not yet qualified.

While some of the team are permanently attached to the Water Activities Centre, many of our Leaders, Rovers and Venturers come down from their respective Groups to help several days during the season. Leaders then take their skills back their Group, so their Group can have fun on the water.

If we ever have more Leaders than we need for the day's activities, you can take out a boat and just have fun. The more the merrier!

If you want come and help, please email the Booking Manager: [email protected]

Venturers and Rovers

For Venturers and Rovers, volunteering at the Water Activities Centre may count towards part of your service or skill requirements for your Queen Scout, Baden-Powell or Duke of Edinburgh Award. Talk to your Leader or Advisor about how to achieve this.

"SWASH is the best place to be on a Sunday. Over the last 4 years at SWASH, I have learnt to sail, canoe and how drive a power boat, all that I wouldn't have if it wasn't for SWASH and the mentors here" - John Wicks, SWASH Staff
