Basic Map Reading & Navigation Training

Time to stop being 'navigationally challenged'

The Sunnywood Project is passionate about the benefits the great outdoors have on our physical and mental well-being. This event is for those with little or no navigation experience and is just as much about experiencing and promoting a love for the great outdoors as it is learning a new skill.

Demystifying the map and building confidence

Our Basic Map-Reading and Navigation Course is perfect for those preparing for events that require some navigation skill, those that just want to venture that little bit further, as well as those looking for a refresher.
