Orienteering

The orienteering course is in the 7 acre Fedderate Woods and a surrounding field.  The children receive an orienteering input and safety briefing prior to starting so no previous experience is required.

The children will explore the woods to locate signal points using a map and they will punch their control cards to register that each signal point has been visited.  This can be done in pairs or small teams.  An element of competition can be added by timing the course.  Bonus points can be earned by collecting a few natural objects on the way.

Suitable for school trips from P4-7 Including snack around the campfire, toasting marshmallows and playing in the forest play park.
