This week we are going to try and earn, or work towards earning, our Navigator Staged Activity Badge.
Today we are looking at Stage 3:
Learn how to read a six figure grid reference.
Understand contour lines on an Ordnance Survey map.
Using 1:50000 and 1:25000 scale Ordnance Survey maps show that you understand the meaning of scale. Can set the map to north and can recognise conventional map symbols.
Follow and walk a route of at least 5km, using a map to navigate for at least part of the journey. Your Leader can plan the route but you’ll work with your team, or take turns,to navigate.
Show you know how to dress appropriately and what kit you and your group will need.
Don't forget to submit your evidence to your leaders. We would also love to see your efforts in the comments section
