Basic Map Reading & Navigation Skills
Map reading and navigation skills are important skills that are developed and improved over time.
Anyone participating will be provided with a map, map cover and compass; all of these are for you to keep. We will give you a practical overview for how to use your map and the basics of map reading. This includes basic features on a map, orientating your map, tracking distances and how to use clues to establish/verify where you are.
With our support and guidance, you have the opportunity to practice as much or as little as you wish over the weekend. This is a very practical and safe way to begin and improve your map reading and navigation skills.
