The day will operate from Caehopkin Scout Hall in the upper Swansea Valley and is being run by members of the ScoutsCymru Mountain training team. The day is intended for anyone who wants to develop their navigation skills.
Participants may come on this day for a number of reasons from gaining the skills they need to train young people in navigation to developing the navigation skills needed for assessment for a Scout Hill walking Permit. No previous experience is needed.
Refreshments are provided at the Scout hall but participants will need to bring their own packed lunch.
The day will start at 9-00 a.m. at the Scout hall with an opportunity to meet other participants and staff and discuss the programme for the day. At this stage participants will be split into teams based previous experience to try to ensure they are working with people of a similar standard.
Teams will then leave the base and travel to suitable venues nearby to enjoy a day out before returning to the base around mid afternoon.
During the day participants will be able to develop various navigation skills including the use of a map and compass. The level of training offered will be varied to suit the needs and experience of the participants to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and productive day.
