Please make cheques payable to Karitek.

*Cancellations will be refunded at our discretion and may include an administration charge.

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 2019 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.

Your Kit

The expectation is that most participants will bring their own kit - kayak, paddle, buoyancy aid and spraydeck. Karitek will have a limited amount of kit available for hire on a pre-arranged basis - contact us before the symposium to enquire. Please email or call us on 01292 571019.
