Using maps to plan your own mini adventure
Orienteering means maps, varied terrain and adventure. You can run, jog or walk; you decide your own pace.
Orienteering is a sport where competitors navigate their way between control points marked on a specially drawn map. We have a number of introductory courses on-site and a number of courses are available locally.
A great activity for schools with challenging courses for all ages and abilities. Can be used as an element in the National Curriculum for PE, Geography and Mathematics. Once the basic skills are understood, decision-making and route planning are key with participants often working in pairs – 2 heads are better than one.
Why? These activities provide the opportunity to work in teams and learn basic map reading. Looking for remote markers means that people really do need to use the skills that have been taught. It’s also a chance to burn off any excess energy.
Where? On site
How long? Can be a half-day session or less when combined with Archery or Zip Wire
