Navigation Courses

Orienteering and Map Reading Adventures

Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, Lake District, North York Moors

Map Reading Course
Navigation is a skill that once learned is useful for life. We navigate through new cities, drive across the country or go out walking in the countryside. The modern technology of satellite navigation that we have learnt to rely on should be backed up by traditional map and compass skills. After all, batteries run out.

The transferable skills learnt through learning to navigate are incredibly useful for those in corporate, team and school environments. These could be a number of skills such as: practical map reading, time keeping, leadership, communication and team work.

We will provide all of the navigation equipment required.

Schools

A popular option with schools is a morning of teaching traditional navigation with a map and compass. Followed up with an afternoon spent completing team based orienteering challenges. This is a lot of fun but is also highly challenging. It rewards them for achievements and keeps them active while they use their brains to finish tasks. The tasks can be based on team building or we can tailor them to suit a number of curriculum subjects. We also offer the Young Navigator Star Award course at all levels.

Upon request we can design and create an orienteering course on your school grounds on a temporary or permanent basis. Contact us here to find out more or read more about our activities for schools.

Cadets

If you are looking to organise Adventure Training activities for a cadet unit, our navigation, map reading and orienteering courses are an ideal place to start. We specialise in organising full day, weekend and full week activity sessions dedicated to cadet training. Other activities may include caving, climbing, gorge walking, water sports and more. Our guides will help train cadets to map read before engaging in a full-day expedition with camp crafting in the evening. We can organise this in many locations including near any UK Armed Forces base.

We run taster navigation courses where we will introduce you to the basics of map and compass skills, timing and using the environment. These are perfect to get you started with navigation and will allow you to progress in your own time.

If you want to brush up on your navigation, we can offer bespoke refresher courses to get you back out into the hills, feeling confident about your ability to plan and find your way. We can cover a variety of skills and techniques or we can assess your skills and come up with an action plan for you.

We provide bespoke Navigation Training courses for beginners, moderate and advanced levels. The trainings are for those wanting to learn how to be self sufficient and skilled in the techniques of navigation.The levels starts at Beginner where no previous experience is necessary, and advances too Moderate and Advanced levels.
