Orienteering

Orienteering combines map reading and compass skills, whilst getting participants out and about around the site.

We have a variety of orienteering courses laid out around a stunning 70 acre site incorporating lakes, copses and open fields, and distances ranging from a few hundred meters to 3km.

Sessions can be adapted to suit all aged groups and experience levels, and include an introductory briefing (or refresher for those more experienced) on navigation skills before starting out. A more detailed training session on navigation can be included if preferred.
