Event description
A day of fun and adventure while learning how to navigate using a map and compass, you'll also learn about managing risks in the outdoors.

About this event

Kids gone wild, Navigation and Orienteering adventure is a brand new School Holiday event, promising the same fun and excitement as Wild 1 and Wild 2 but covering new skills.

With the rise in GPS technology the art of reading a map and using a compass is rapidly diminishing. Navigation is not just about the map and compass, it's more about having an awareness of the surrounding landscape and the ability to read the land. It's a great way to teach the interconnectedness we have with the environment around us.

This exciting new event will teach your child the knowledge and skills to be able to able to read a topographical map and use basic compass skills.

Throughout the day we'll cover the key points of navigation; Topographical maps, map features, orientating the map, grid references, compass types, using the compass, taking a bearing.

We'll then put these newly learnt skills to use by tackling Rewild's new orienteering course. Participants will need to navigate to find a number of checkpoint markers located throughout our property, each of which has a unique hole punch which is used to verify that particular checkpoint has been found.

As well as having fun, a key component of spending time in the bush is safety and risk management.

Throughout the day we'll also covering the essential skills of Wilderness first aid which includes; snake bite treatment and risk minimisation, ticks and leeches and sprains and strains .

Finally well discuss what to do if you become lost in the bush.
