Orienteering

Orienteering combines the navigation skills of using a map and compass with walking or running around a course.

Our orienteering courses are laid out in over 80 acres of stunning South Gloucestershire countryside, complete with woodland, lakes and meadows.

As well as orienteering sessions for Schools and Parties, during the summer we open our orienteering course up to the public. Throughout the Summer we are also running Orienteering and Navigation Skills days for 8-14 year olds.
