Orienteering for Schools
Half Day : 3 Hours
Helping schools develop initiative, teamwork and leadership
Arena Pursuits has developed various orienteering sessions, both half and full day, which can be used either as a competitive team building event or fund raising days.
Set in the heart of South East England on 250 acres and overlooking the 770 acres of Bewl Water, you have access to miles of woodland tracks, bridle paths, country lanes and the 13 mile Bewl perimeter walk.
Here is your chance to test your map reading skills and see of the old legs can keep up with the youngsters!
Using 1:25.000 scale maps, compasses are not required as field boundaries are shown in detail to aid navigation.
Teams will be issued with a list of map references, each of which relates to a cryptic clue.
The answer can only be found by visiting the actual spot. The most distant places will be worth more points, but they cannot all be visited in the time allowed.
Teams can either work together as one group or split into 2 sections to cover as much ground as possible within the time constraints.
Walkers should bring a complete change of warm waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear plus each group should have at least 1 mobile phone in the event of an emergency.
