Summer Camps 2017

Dear Member,

Children’s Summer Camp courses are booking up fast. .

If you have a specific week in mind I would recommend you book soon to avoid disappointment.

Weeks cost £190 for members and £240 for non-members.

To book go to

We would ask all members to spread the word about our summer camps. They are excellent value for money and a wonderful adventure for children either starting out or improving their skills.


It’s not all about the kids , the next adult Level 1 is on the 29th – 30th July, guaranteed to run and make new friends and have fun.

We look forward to a summer full of fun.

Team Datchet 


Team Datchet at the World Of Opportunities Program (WOOP) STEM Careers Event

Today team Datchet attended the  World Of Opportunities Program (WOOP) STEM Careers Event at Computer Associates. 500 students attended from 12 different schools in the local area. There was a lot of interest generated by the stand and great enthusiasm expressed by the students in the learn to sail programme. Teachers came along to discuss how Datchet could be more involved with their schools as part of pre-existing schemes such as DofE and P.E. The team used the opportunity to network with the other companies invited to the event and set up potential corporate days in the future. Furthermore, the event allowed bonds to build between DWSC and the local community businesses who are allowing us to advertise within them.  One school teacher signed up to a power boat course on the day and many more contact details were generated by the extremely successful event.
