Canal boating is one of my favourite things to do at The Boathouse. It helps you learn new skills, like cooking, driving a boat and how to keep safe. You spend time with friends and leaders and it makes you more confident. Thank you BHY

If you’re a young person living in Blackpool and can easily access one of our sites, then we can probably provide you with life-changing experiences and support. There is usually quite a long waiting list to join, so get your name on the list as soon as possible.
