Air Rifle and Pistol Club at Peter Ashley Activity Centres Portsmouth
Orienteering at Fort Purbrook is a challenging activity that develops the body and mind. Our orienteering sessions give an introduction into map reading skills through this practical activity. Participants must navigate their way around the centre to find various markers, working as a team and using only a map.

Using concentration, communication and teamwork skills children will soon learn how rewarding an activity orienteering can be when they are successful in getting to their destination all by themselves.

Techniques in map reading, scales, keys and grids will be taught by our instructors during this session as teams compete in games and races to see who can reach the destination first.

The Orienteering at Fort Purbrook is fully accessible and suitable for participants with a range of disabilities.

We also offer off-site orienteering at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, for that extra bit of adventure and sense of exploration.

This is the perfect activity for parties, school groups, work groups and more. If you are a school looking for a different way of bringing your subject alive, we can tailor the sessions to meet your lesson and curriculum objectives. Our progressive on-site course allows for cross curricular opportunities linking with Maths, PE, English, History and Geography!
