Orienteering offers a creative and inexpensive outdoor (or indoor) activity in schools, local parks and campuses. It appeals to a wide range of ages and fitness levels. The real-life problem solving skills experienced in orienteering can help make geography, maths and science more relevant to students and young people, whilst also building their confidence, communication and social skills.
