Orienteering Adventures

Wednesday, August 21, 2024 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

An epic day of exploration around the Wittenham Clumps where you’ll navigate through challenges to discover the secrets of the landscape…

Orienteering Adventure – for children aged 7 – 12 years

The day begins with our intrepid young explorers getting to know each other with some fun team building challenges. Then it’s time to learn key orienteering skills – map reading and how to use a compass correctly – and have a go at practising in the safety of our Earth Lab gardens.

After lunch, we head over to the hills – the impressive Wittenham Clumps – to take on orienteering challenges which test your navigational skills and teamwork as you navigate through the beautiful surroundings of Earth Trust. Working in small teams, we work on honing collaborative and communication skills to find all the markers, and find fun facts about the history of the landscape along the way.

It’s sure to be an unforgettable day of excitement and exploration at the Orienteering Adventure event. Get ready to discover the hidden wonders of Wittenham Clumps, learn new skills and create memories that will last a lifetime!
