Words from our customers

What I got from this camp is so much more than how to paddle and sail. I learned how to learn.


The road will not teach you anything! People follow the road because it’s easy but it’s not necessarily the way to go. Because you might not learn new things, see new things or have as much fun. More opportunities come when you step outside your comfort zone and try new things. That’s why we should walk off the road.


Pat really enjoyed the experience and has come back a different kid.

I had a splendid day paddling with Up The Creek! Luca is a very passionate guide, he added to the experience and made it unforgettable! I would definitely recommend.


I have come away in awe of the efforts of some of our kids, so proud of what they have achieved and inspired by Luna's influence in taking them to the edge of their comfort zone so they can learn in a way they never have before.


Hi Derek, I thought you’d like this one. Earlier in the week I was teaching ... students were very reluctant to think..... when they started to think one student said ‘Oh man!! This is just like Up The Creek’ Bingo!! Best compliment I’ve had in ages. I really enjoy the way you’ve made me think about my teaching.
