Outdoor Skills Walks
Outdoor Skills Walking programme is looking into planning and preparing for Big Walks; National & International Walks and Walking Holidays. It is step up from the Local Walks and you will be encouraged to try and remember and practise some truly interesting skills;
Movement skills - Why posture and Pace is important ?
Clothing, Footwear & Equipment People might have the best gear money can buy, still, it is good to know when and how to use it
Weather - Understanding the weather and its influence on our plans
Planning and Preparing for walks - What do you really need to think about when preparing for "your personal expedition"
Communication - What are good listening skills? How to give a clear message. What about our body language?
Navigation - Map reading from specially prepared maps as well as using OS maps, point-to-point navigation using magnetic compass and GPS
You might also try to lead a walk, and see what responsibilities go with leadership - walkers rely on a leader's knowledge and skills to guide them safely.
