Schools and youth groups
Learning should be fun, and the more practical the task is, the easier it is to learn!
Wildwood Navigation provides a range of exciting and educational navigation activities that children find great fun.
Wildwood Navigation is an approved provider of the NNAS accredited Young Navigator Star Awards and can provide these as custom courses for schools.
We aim to help teachers by providing risk assessments and worksheets and clearly linking our activities to the National Curriculum. We work with teachers before the visit to tailor the session to fit with subjects the children are studying and the key stage they are at.
All our instructors are experienced, first aid trained and CRB cleared. We work with all age groups, as well as excluded pupils.
We charge from £10 per child with no extra charge for supervising adults (up to 1 adult per 6 children). For large groups of over 60 children discounts can be arranged. Please note that there is a minimum charge of £200 per day that applies to small groups. If the desired course content and numbers of pupils are judged to require more than one bushcraft instructor, an additional charge will be incurred.
We can run orienteering courses at Broadstone Warren Scout Centre in the Ashdown Forest, West Sussex for older children and can also teach the basics of navigation with map and compass within your own school ground or an area near to you.
