Make Your Own Orienteering Map

Make Your Own Mini-Course
 
Why not create you own orienteering course for the family? For example, what about matching Autumnal colour markers with something you can find in nature of that colour?  Or explore your local green spaces and learn in the outdoors by finding specific trees or creating courses with our handy tree Orienteering markers?

Orienteering: House and Garden

For a home map, I would recommend using a green triangle as the start symbol and red circles numbered for the markers.  

For traditional control markers, download and print these numbered markers (1 to 10, plus two blanks) and design your own course around your house and garden.
