About Reva

REVA Scouts Water Activity Centre provide RYA Sailing Courses, RYA Powerboat Courses and Water Activity Sessions which can include sailing, kayaking, open canoes, rowing, stand up paddleboarding, paddleboarding, bellboating and raft building.

We encourage Scout and Guide groups to use Reva Scouts Water Activity Centre as well as members of the Wharfedale Scout Sailing Centre.

We are an accredited RYA Training Centre and are able to offer both RYA youth and
adult scheme courses for our members.

On completion of a course our membership packages enable you to make use of our centre, craft and club facilities. For those who complete advanced sailing courses this includes the use of our

modern asymmetric RS sailing dinghies.

For a small addition fee you can make use of our secure dinghy park and sail your own craft both when safety boat cover is available and on a “Buddy Sailing” basis.


REVA Scout Water Activity Centre is located at Reva Reservoir enjoying stunning panoramic views. 
It is located on Bingley Road, just above Hawksworth, LS20 8PW.
