Navigating on a family adventure
Simon McGrath, the author of Camping with Kids, explains why navigation can be a fun and informative part of any family adventure.
Discover how you can take part in Britain's national night – and day – of Wild Adventure.
Research by Ordnance Survey has shown that less and less people, especially young people and children, are getting outside and visiting the countryside and green spaces on offer in Britain.
Did you know that only a third of children in Britain spend more than an hour a day outdoors, more than a third of children have never been camping? Does that surprise you?
In an age where more and more Brits are becoming inactive and technology is a centre part of life from an early age (children spend an average of 6 hours a day in front of a screen), it is more important than ever to get outside.
Wild Night Out encourages everyone – families, first timers, seasoned explorers – to enjoy a night – and day – of wild adventure on Saturday 1 July. It doesn't matter what you like doing, whether it's walking, cycling, kayaking, camping or something else, Wild Night Out is about you finding your adventure. You can also fundraise for charity and help more young people to explore the outdoors.
'Wild Night Out inspires adventure in everyone and gives disadvantaged young people a chance to do the same. Get involved today!'
