Description

Would you like to learn a new skill? Would you like to feel more confident when walking in the countryside?

Mount Cook Adventure Centre and The Silva Navigation School have joined forces to provide a selection of practical, all-inclusive Bronze and Silver Navigation Courses throughout the year. The SIlva Navigation instructors follow the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) syllabus, offering a structured approach to learning navigation skills. Mount Cook complements the course by providing comfortable, en-suite accommodation, a selection of delicious meals throughout the weekend and access to a licensed bar in the evenings.

The Bronze NNAS course is a practical award aimed at people who are new to map reading and navigation. The syllabus of the Bronze Award allows participants to develop a range of skills, including:

  • Orientating the map using land forms and features

  • Using a compass to confirm direction of travel and map orientation

  • Using linear features, such as paths, in simple navigation exercises

  • Measuring horizontal distances on a map

  • Planning and implementing simple routes

The all-inclusive price is £250 pp. This encompasses the cost for the Bronze Navigation Award, two nights en-suite accommodation and all catering for the weekend. Pre-booking is essential, so please visit: www.mountcook.org/events to reserve your place. We hope to see you there!
