Avon Joint Guide and Scout Rowing and Pulling Club


An activity for fun and fitness!

Our Club gives the opportunity for Scout and Guide section members (and older) to learn to handle a boat under oars with skill and confidence - and to have fun in doing so!

The historic Bristol Floating harbour can be explored and our Boathouse used as a base for many other activities in and around Bristol.

We offer fun/taster sessions on weekday evenings during the Spring and Summer and on Saturdays we run courses for some watery Scout or Guide Activity badges and for sections of the DofE Award. Training courses are run for adults wanting to become Pulling Boat Permit holders and County/District Pulling Instructors. Adult parties from Senior Section, Network and Active Support or Trefoil units are most welcome.

The Club operates under the authority of Avon Scout County and Girlguiding Bristol & South Gloucestershire County and follows the Joint Activity Rules agreed by the two Association nationally.
