Adventurous Activities

Adventurous activities are mostly outdoor pursuits. Outdoor and Adventurous Activities can include playing in a playground, following maps and trails (known as orienteering), and problem solving. There are various guidelines and skills involved with orienteering.

Playing outdoors can be great fun. There is a lot to explore and discover and, who knows, you may find an ancient coin or even buried treasure!

When you are outdoors, it's important to keep yourself and those you are with safe, and there are skills needed for these activities. It's so easy to wander off the beaten path because you've spotted something exciting or interesting. Before you know it, you could be very lost and not be able to find your way home.
