Have you always wanted to try orienteering, but have never been able to try it? Or – have you orienteered in the past, but need to freshen up your orienteering skills a bit? Visit the Bagheera Orienteering School, offered in Swedish end English, at our main Arenas Pattons hage, Östuna and Flottsund.
The orienteering school is free of charge and is meant for anyone, regardless of which orienteering skills you already have. We have the time and desire to help anyone who wants help. You get to decide how much or how little help you want. Our hope is that, after visiting the orienteering school, you will feel inspired to get out into the woods on your own and complete one of the orienteering courses available for direct entry.
At the orienteering school we can go over orienteering basics, as well as the procedure for starting and completing an orienteering course. We can explain the meaning of map symbols, how to best use that knowledge on the course, and how to use the compass to orient yourself.
If you are interested in going out on a course after taking some lessons, we can help you select an appropriate course with the right difficulty level and length for you. After you run your course, we hope you come back to us and tell us how it went. Perhaps we can give you some tips for developing your orienteering skills for next time.
