Why not try your hand at orienteering with Forestry Commission England in the nation’s forests this winter to test your navigation skills around the woods. The aim is for everyone is to move between control points marked on an orienteering map. If you are a little more competitive the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time.
Children will love the Gruffalo Orienteering course available at 14 Forestry Commission sites across England. A fun, navigational challenge using a simple map to find 12 Gruffalo markers hidden in the deep, dark wood. Children can choose to run or walk the course through the woodlands and can time themselves against the clock if they want to increase the challenge.
