Workshop 7

Orienteering is an activity that combines running and walking with navigation. Participants use detailed maps to select routes and navigate through different terrain and visit control points in sequence. 

It’s a really great way to teach outdoor skills to children and adults alike, and youngsters can sharpen their competitive streak when they get good at it too.

Set in Lough Key Forest, young people can get creative about how they navigate their way through the park and become familiar with the natural heritage which surrounds them.
