Beginners / Bronze Navigation Course (NNAS)
This is a two day course covering map reading and basic compass skills with plenty of time to practice in the outdoors. The course is suitable for complete beginners or those who have some experience with maps but would like a refresher. The course is a step by step guide to map reading.We cover between 3 and 5 miles each day at a leisurely pace. The compass element is basic on the course and compasses can be borrowed (£10 returnable deposit).
“I don’t have a great sense of direction and believed that I would get horribly lost if I went out hiking on my own. Two days of the Bronze course with Clare proved me wrong! All I needed was a good teacher, a women’s only environment and supervised practice. Part way through the second day I realised that I was able to read the map and the landscape. I was navigating! It was an empowering experience. I would highly recommend it to any woman who would like the confidence to get out into the hills.” Ruth
“Great course in a relaxed, friendly environment with ‘spot on’ teaching by Clare. Plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice in the Peaks, as the group size is small ensuring everyone gets individual attention. I attended the Bronze course in Hathersage and throughly recommend it.” Libby
“What a brilliant weekend! I wanted to improve my confidence in the hills and have certainly done that. It didn’t even matter that it was wet and windy. Clare is not only very knowledgeable but also a genuinely kind and supportive person…. I not only reinforced what I already knew but also discovered lots of unknown unknowns ? I would definitely recommend Clare’s courses…” Jacqueline
