Child looking at map.

Explore Brockholes this summer...

Find the themed markers and complete the challenge in this navigational family adventure.

Brought to you in partnership with British Orienteering and Xplorer, this is the perfect outdoor activity to get the whole family outside together in the fresh air.

Two challenges are available:

  • Challenge 1 - This is a pram-friendly route where the markers you need to find are located on or next to surfaced paths. These markers are ordered in numbers and form a circular route. This is the ideal challenge for those new to Brockholes or to orienteering as well as those with younger children.
  • Challenge 2 - This course represents more of a challenge, requiring you to use your navigational skills to track down the markers located across the reserve. This route is not suitable for prams.

How to take part

There's no need to book the Xplorer Challenge, just turn up between Saturday 20 July - Sunday 1 September, 10am-4pm, and collect your map pack from the Welcome Centre located on the floating Visitor Village.

Map packs are £3 each and include a map, an answer sheet, a Brockholes pencil and, on completion, a certificate, sticker and sweet treat.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
