All young people aged 8 to 18 years old who attend any of the activities through HYMB must be current members, with the exception of Try Canoe and Kayak sessions. This is because holding membership means we have parental consent for Juniors to take part in activities.
Junior Membership costs £5.00 per person and is valid for 12 months from the date of subscription. A parent/guardian will be the account holder for all their children who are registered as Junior Members. Once registered, the parent/guardian will be issued one membership number for all registered children. This membership will then allow you to book your children on any of our Junior Activities. Please ensure that you are logged in when booking Junior Acitivies, by following the set-up information on your Membership Confirmation email.
Members can participate in the regular weekly After School Clubs, Courses, Holiday Activities and other activities run by HYMB or at other times providing they meet the minimum requirements detailed below. Please see our Terms and Conditions page for full terms and conditions of booking. (HYMB membership does not include participation in sessions run by Herts Canoe Lifeguards or Edmonton Canoe Group)
