An immersive session (10:00 - 14:00) of delving in to the fundamentals of navigation and putting them into use. You will learn:

  • Map features and symbols
  • Locating yourself on the map using the clues around you
  • Compass bearings and moving on bearings
  • Relocating yourself
  • Following a route
  • Estimating time needed to follow a route

Plus many other tips and tricks.

The Course will take place at The Bothie, Sutton Scarsdale, near Chesterfield.

This will be a mix of indoor / outdoor training so ensure you are wearing suitable clothing / footwear relative to the conditions. We will be moving around rural paths and countryside - at a walking pace rather than running.

If you have your own compass bring it along. If not we do have some you can borrow.

Tea and coffee will be provided.

First Light Adventure endeavour to provide a safe, risk assessed training environment both in the classroom and in the practical outdoor setting. Each course will be restricted to 8 clients.
