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, the course is so interesting and also fun, participants need to work as a team that developed good teamwork and also improving link and connection with each other

On level 2 Families will learn and practice how to read topographic maps and how to work map and compass together, in the end, participants must pass skill test for certification
