British Orienteering is the sports National Governing Body. Orienteering is an exciting cross curriculum sport that can be delivered within the classroom, playground or school grounds. Orienteering provides multiple learning opportunities across Key Stages and a young person can enjoy both the mental and physical challenges.
Xplorer events provide an introduction to the sport of orienteering through a fun, navigational challenge that takes place in local parks. Families enjoy getting active together and using a simple map of the park to find the markers. Aimed at primary and pre-school children, and their parents, grand-parents and guardians, Xplorer events involve a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making.
Xplorer is perfect for children as they can run around in a safe and friendly environment and will have a great adventure searching for the secret markers. Map reading experience isn’t necessary and parents are encouraged to join in the fun! For more information, visit: www.xplorer.org.uk or www.BritishOrienteering.org.uk
