Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time.
It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace. Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It’s a great sport for young people and families to build strong relationships together whilst improving their navigation skills and discovering fun ways to enjoy the outdoors. Orienteering is truly the adventure sport for all.
Geo-caching is a real world treasure hunt, where participants combine GPS navigation skills with their ability to search and find hidden objects called cache’s. Caches are graded and can range from easy to very hard to locate. Geo-cacher’s use their smart phones or hand held GPS devices to follow GPS coordinates downloaded from the National website. Once located participants can log their experiences and the item found. Geo-caching is lots of fun and can be carried out solitary or as part of a team building activity.
