If you would like your kids to learn some valuable life skills then join us on our children’s map reading courses in Yorkshire. They will learn the golden rule of map reading – and much more. Navigation using a map and compass is not some irrelevant skill from the past. It’s good mental exercise for adults and it’s a fun way to get kids active and engaged with some problem-solving. You can even continue the theme when you get back home indoors.

Using a progressive series of fun activities, we introduce children to the skills of map reading.  This will stand them in stead for the rest of their lives, whatever they do.
