Orienteering is the ultimate activity to help your group bond and gain confidence.

Working in groups, students learn the fundamental principles of navigation. Put your team to the test on one of our orienteering programmes. Students under 14 should compete in groups accompanied by an adult.

Students learn the essential skills using a map and compass as they explore our permanent orienteering course. Our score course tests tactics in addition to teamwork.

Students navigate our permanent orienteering course using touch- screen GPS machines. GPS orienteering also offers students the chance to develop information and communication technology skills and is great at engaging hard to reach students.
