Orienteering

This orienteering course involves using a map to navigate around the centre grounds and locate markers.

The participants can be left to work in small groups without direct supervision, giving them a sense of adventure and independence.

Each marker has a number, shape and colour which must be recorded in order to score points

Mission Impossible is a group activity for up to 90 pupils which combines the challenge of Orienteering and Raft building.
