Want to learn something new? Want to try something different this year? If the answers to both questions are yes, this might be the perfect thing for you.

We have teamed up with AFS Mountaineering to provide a Bronze National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) including accommodation to Robin Hood’s Bay.

Come and learn new skills and start your journey to become an independent and confident hill walker in an amazing place. The bronze NNAS is nationally recognised and all aspects of the syllabus will be covered by an experienced, qualified and certified guide.

The Bronze NNAS is a practical, hands-on award. It is aimed at people with no navigation experience whether you are new to the outdoors or have been relying on others or guidebooks. It is also the starting point for many Duke of Edinburgh students, scouts, guides and cadets who are looking to develop their outdoor skills.

Is it for me? To see the Bronze NNAS Course syllabus please click here.

The award covers the following:

  • Maps and scales
  • Grid references
  • Orientating a map with and without a compass
  • Relate prominent landforms to the contours on a map
  • Locate yourself on the map and route, and relocation techniques
  • Measure and estimate distances on the map and the ground
  • Plan routes and use simple navigation strategies
  • Access issues and legislation
  • The countryside code and the environment
  • Walking and safety equipment and emergency procedures

The course is run over two consecutive days with a minimum of 12 hours tutor time (including assessment).  The course is run in the North York Moors National Park.
