Navigation & Camp Micro-adventure
Meet at a secret location near Andover for this micro-adventure learning navigation techniques, hiking skills and environmental knowledge along the way. The ideal adventure for navigation and camping beginners or for anyone wanting to brush up their skills.
Discover Your Outdoors has teamed up with Love Her Wild to run this micro-adventure exclusively for the Love Her Wild women’s community. Both organisations bring small teams together for adventures in wild spaces – always with an emphasis on being a supportive team overreaching any goal.
Our micro-adventure will start before we even leave home with a Zoom session on Tuesday 31st May to meet our group, learn about kit, clothes and food and answer any questions you have.
On Saturday morning we will meet at a secret location near Andover, Hampshire then walk as a group into our campsite learning navigation techniques, hiking skills and environmental knowledge along the way. We will work together to set up tents, swapping campcraft knowledge, before enjoying dinner and settling in for the night. Our campsite will be a hay field with compost toilet and water but no other facilities. On Sunday, you’ll have a chance to put what you’ve learnt into practice by progressing to lead the group at times (with support).
This will be a great opportunity for those wishing to build their skills and confidence in:
· route planning
· outdoor kit and clothes
· looking after ourselves and others outdoors
Things to consider:
-You don’t need to be super fit or speedy but you should be able to walk up to 12km carrying your gear on two consecutive days.
-You will ideally have some previous day walking or camping experience and be looking to progress the skills mentioned above
– If you’re not sure if this is for you, or have any questions, then let’s have a chat!
– Picks up from Whitchurch station are available upon request.
