Ready To Go Orienteering Course

READY TO GO ORIENTEERING trains and equips teachers, youth leaders, scout leaders, camp providers etc with the skills and ability to teach the fundamentals of the sport to beginners and young people, whilst providing them with the necessary resources to do this.

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.

Schools participating in this programme can apply to have a customised orienteering map made of their school grounds. Such maps have features that are commonly found in the school yard e.g.. benches, lamp posts, goal posts, basketball court, playground frames etc.
