This spring and summer we are launching a series of talks and practical workshops to help improve outdoor skills, confidence and competence.

Ordnance Survey #GetOutside Champion Jason Rawles has been adventuring in the UK and across the world for over 30yrs. We are delighted that Jason is joining us for these events.

In-store Talks

During these talks Jason will be sharing his experience with tips, guidance and thoughts to help you plan safe and fun adventures and to help build your confidence in the outdoors.

Jason will be sharing:

  • How to plan and prepare effectively
  • Getting the most from your time outdoors
  • Map skills and how Ordnance Survey support your adventure journey
  • Essential kit and cost effective ways to get the most from your equipment
  • Emergency procedures
  • Some of his adventure experiences to inspire your next

There will be spot prizes throughout the talk and the chance to ask questions. It's time to get excited and start to think about planning your next adventure…

1 Day Workshops

Jason will be your guide for a day to help you get more from your time outdoors in these practical sessions.

During these 1 day workshops, as individuals and as a team, you will:

  • Learn how to start your adventure in the best way possible.
  • Look at and play with the kit needed to be involved in safe and fun adventures in an outdoor environment
  • Learn, practice and apply map reading skills to help build your confidence in getting outdoors safely
  • Discuss and understand emergency procedures and how to keep yourself and others safe
  • Look at ways to make your adventure more fun and engaging particularly if you will be taking families outdoors
  • Dealing with any questions, concerns or worries that people may have with planning amazing adventure experiences

During these workshops we will not be travelling very far but we will be going in to the outdoors and off the beaten track into areas where the weather and conditions may not be favourable.

Once you have confirmed booking we shall send a suggested kit list and 72hrs before the day we will confirm expected weather conditions along with location meet point.
