NNAS Outdoor Discovery Award - 3 Star
The Outdoor Discovery Award (ODA) is ideal for people of all ages who wish to learn basic navigation skills at a gentle rate, encouraging them to gain and improve personal confidence to get out and get active. The award has been developed to help group leaders introduce the basic elements of navigation to people who want to explore outside.
Previously known as Young Navigator Star Awards (YNSA), the revamped and updated ODA continues with the core ethos of the YNSA: encouraging exploration and journeying in local areas using simple maps such as street maps, pictorial park maps and orienteering maps. The ODA levels are aimed at all age groups and abilities.
At 3 Star level, participants:
plan and follow straightforward journeys around familiar and unfamiliar areas
discover and investigate points of interest during the journey
understand basic walking safety issues and have respect for the environment
After achieving the ODA 3 Star, participants should be able to plan and follow journeys in unfamiliar local areas using appropriate maps.
This navigation course is organised and run for groups. Sorry, we do not provide open courses for this qualification.
