Urban orienteering activity for schools and organizations (unthemed)

Hone your spatial skills with orienteering in public space! We provide urban orienteering activities for schools and organizations to discover public space. There are a number of options to choose from:

Easy

In the easy version, you get a set course of checkpoints; we discuss the route choice with you. You get to actively lead the navigation with our guidance.

Medium

In the medium version (requires two or more people), you get to interactively decide the checkpoints you want to go. We play a game where two teams choose checkpoints, and each team must then find the other team’s checkpoints.

Advanced

In the advanced version (requires two or more people), we play a game where two teams do a round exploration of the area and draw a map. You then choose several checkpoints and ask the other team to visit these checkpoints, taking photos as proof.

All levels include an introduction of the area and selected checkpoints, as well as a discussion on navigation and visual cues in public space, where applicable.

For this activity, please email info@metviplay.com for booking.
