With the help of photos or just letters at the checkpoints you can carry out activities whenever you want. At “Internationella Engelska Skolan, Kista” (close to Stockholm) a “Treasure Hunt” have been done.
It’s a walking orienteering through the school. The students had to find a letter at each checkpoint and in the end they had to put the letters together to a new clue to find the map of part 2.
Depending of the level in school you can increase the difficulties step by step.
You don’t need to redraw a new map, just make a copy of the “Evacuation Plan” at your school. All hotels, big factories, shopping centres etc have an Evacuation Plan, just use it for orienteering.
It’s a perfect opportunity to educate youngsters in a fun way to get them involved in orienteering!
