Getting into the great outdoors is good for you.

We know that taking those first steps can be a daunting prospect, and the fear of getting lost can be overwhelming. That’s why we’re on hand to provide easy navigation from the ground up.

We don’t teach by telling, we teach by real-life practice.

Evening Short Courses

Our evening short courses are great for those completely new to navigation.

Over 2 hours, we use a variety of fun and engaging games and techniques to get you thinking about navigation differently. These courses run inside only, so you don’t need to worry about bringing any specialised equipment!

One-Day Navigation Courses

Great for those who want a little more hands-on experience, we have two levels of course available.

Beginner Course: This course looks at exploration and journeying using simple maps such as street maps, pictorial park maps and orienteering maps. Not only do you get to grips with essential skills, but you also get to practice them as we venture outside for the later part of the day. By following a nationally recognised framework (the Young Star Navigator Award – YNSA), successful candidates are eligible for a certificate at the end of the day too!

Intermediate Course: If you already have an understanding of maps and compasses, and have used these skills to navigate on paths and tracks, then why not take part in the intermediate course. On this course you will start to move into open countryside, relying more on the shape of the land and more precise compass work to make sure you head in the right direction.

The one-day courses are perfect as a precursor to the NNAS award!

National Navigation Award Scheme

We offer the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) at Bronze and Silver level so, whether you want to start reading a map and compass, or continue your navigation journey, we will help you reach your goals. By building on your current experiences, you will complete these courses with a solid understanding of navigation techniques, helping you to get into the great outdoors on your own.

If you are completing your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE), the skills you learn through completing a NNAS course are transferable to the Expedition Section of your award, and you can even use it to gain SCQF credit points upon completion.
