Nature Orienteering

Nature Orienteering

Are you tired of sullen children being stuck to screens?

Would you like them calmer, happier, better behaved?

If so, nature can provide the solution, as she has done ever since there have been human beings.

Recent studies have shown that not only do children calm down after spending time in nature, but their social skills improve, as well as their test scores.

Not only that, but they also improve their concentration, and other crucial life skills. And they’re more fun to be around as well!

How to introduce them to nature again

Your schoolyard is surprisingly full of so many natural wonders. So why not discover and showcase them to your students with a challenging treasure hunt that is nature orienteering!

We will pre-arrange a course and simple map for your students, load them up with clues on how it’s done and they are off! The schoolyard and its wonders are their domain!

When they arrive at a checkpoint, there will be curious questions about what that particular nature’s gem is.

It is a fun and interactive way to help capture some natural curiosity in your students, while also encouraging exercise, teamwork and getting them into the great outdoors!
