Aim: To be able to plan and follow routes in the countryside using paths and tracks.
The Bronze National Navigation Award is a practical hands-on award. It is aimed at people with no navigation experience whether you are new to the outdoors or have been relying on others, guidebooks or easy well-defined routes.
We will meet on the first day at the Cafe, have a hot drink and then head out into the Surrey Hills for a day of practical learning and shorter sessions to help understand the different things to learn. On the second day we will meet at the same location and after a recap in the morning, we'll do a variety of short journeys to check you can navigate to that level.
The course will be mainly outdoors, so please dress appropriately, with good shoes and bring a pack lunch. We will not cover more than 15km (9ish miles) on either day, all at a slow walk - the first is usually shorter in distance due to stop-start travelling to help explain difference techniques.
We will e-mail you 2 days before with final information.
The syllabus of the Bronze National Navigation Award teaches navigation in the countryside using paths tracks and other linear features. Basic map interpretation and compass work is also included.
