An immersive morning 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  

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.

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

Please note: First Light Active endeavour to provide a safe, risk assessed training environment both in the classroom and in the practical outdoor setting. Operating procedures include elements to minimise catching or transmitting COVID-19. The delivery is adapted so that it incorporates good hygiene practices and working safely at a social distance. Due to the current 2 metre social distancing requirement, each course is limited to 4 clients. Each client is asked to bring their own hand sanitiser, gloves and face mask (bandana/buff type covering is ok). As well as notifying clients this in writing ahead of the course, it will be discussed with clients at the start of a session.

By way of offering further reassurance to clients, if the course is unable to go ahead because of further COVID-19 restrictions you will be able to get a refund (less booking fee) or transfer to a new date. Any client experiencing COVID-19 symptoms in the 24 hours prior to attending a course will be able to transfer their booking or claim a refund.
