Introduction

Our off-site orienteering courses in the local National Forest provide progressively more difficult activities - available with or without a compass. More challenging than our on-site orienteering courses, they are suitable for older children or more experienced orienteerers.

Session overview

After an initial safety briefing, participants will be given an in-depth introduction to the equipment they will be using during the session. Participants will then receive demonstration before moving on to the activity where they will be instructed throughout.
