National Navigation Award

Learning the basic navigation skills

The Bronze National Navigation Award is a practical hands-on award.

It’s for those who are new to outdoor adventures or who have only previously used guidebooks and easy, well-defined routes.

The award is the starting point for many Duke of Edinburgh's Award students, scouts and guides and cadets who are looking to develop their outdoor skills.

Its syllabus teaches navigation in the countryside using paths, tracks and other linear features. Basic map interpretation and compass work is also included.

We currently have a Bronze and Silver Award program planned for spring 2018.
