How to Book

The Symposium fee for the two days of courses (including Saturday night ceilidh) is £140 per person.

  • To secure your place, download, complete and return the booking form - payment in full is required at time of booking. Download a booking form here.

Please make cheques payable to Karitek.

*If you cancel, we'll do our best to find another taker for your place, but refunds can only be given if we manage to do so, sorry.

In the extremely unlikely event that we need to cancel, we'll of course refund your payment in full.

 Choose your courses

When you complete your booking form, please choose your preferred courses from our 2018 programme. Indicating what you'd like to do during the 2 days of the symposium gives us an idea of 'where you are at' and we will do our best to slot you in to the right workshops. We cannot guarantee that every session will run, but we'll be doing our utmost to ensure that your wishes are met. And if all this is new and you've no idea, just tick the beginner box on the booking form and we'll choose the best courses for you.

Kit Hire

While we expect most participants to have their own boat, paddle & basic kit, we will probably have a limited number of boats (including paddle, buoyancy aid and spraydeck) available to hire. Contact Karitek before the symposium to reserve - kit available on a first come, first served basis. Please email or call us on 01292 571019.
