Course Overview

In the era of GPS navigation, actual Land Navigation skills are becoming a thing of the past, but what do you do when those things don’t work?  It doesn’t take much for the cellular network to be overloaded, When you can’t place a call you have very limited data use as well.  What about the GPS?  Satellites overhead keeping us within a few feet of our actual location at all times, but what if your device loses power?  What if it breaks?  

For this reason, we decided to organise basic Land Navigation course for Families,  this Level 1 course teaches how to navigate on unfamiliar territory using only a compass, the course is so interesting and also fun, the course including the orientation game where the families need to to use the compass to find the waypoints, its just outstanding, they need to work as a team that developed good teamwork and also improving link and connection with each other
