FIS Orienteering Club

Come and join the all new FIS Orienteering Club! We will get outside to learn how to use a map and compass. And learn about nature on the way. We will also introduce the ideas of how to navigate. The course is intended to be good fun and a great way to connect with nature.

The main aims of the course are: getting out into nature and enjoying the outdoors, introduce you to what a map is and how it works, inspire you to see the outdoors as a great place to explore, building up basic navigation, up to using a map and compass, learning to look after yourself in the outdoors.

The course will be conducted entirely outside, predominantly in Tennenloher Forst. The course will be run by Ollie, a fully qualified and experienced International Mountain Leader and wilderness first-responder. No specialist equipment needed, just appropriate clothing and footwear to be in the forest in all weathers.
