This year we teamed up with Wild Night Out to launch the national wild adventure. It’s taking place on Saturday, and the ultimate day of adventure for Great Britain is designed to encourage people of all ages and abilities to get active and enjoy the outdoors.
In preparation for the event we held an employee event in the lovely grounds of our Southampton head office, to help our teams plan for their own Wild Night Out! Activities included bush craft skills and navigation training, a demo of OS Maps and the chance to earn our own Wild Night Out mug.
It was a pleasure to meet the staff at @ordnancesurvey hq I hope they all enjoy their #OSWildNightOut #bushcraft #wildlife #wildcamp #forest #countryside #survival #woodland #woodlands #camping #adventure #nature #hiking #instalike #instagram #instalikes #getoutdoors #giveitago #getoutdoors #GetOutside
Wild Night Out was founded by OS GetOutside Champion Belinda Kirk in 2016 and is Britain’s biggest night-and-day of adventure. It’s all about encouraging Britain to GetOutside with family and friends, create their own outdoor adventures and take part in fun activities to get active and enjoy the world around them.
You don’t have to climb a mountain, or run a marathon, it’s simply about going for a walk, kayaking down a river, exploring a National Park, jumping in muddy puddles, camping in the back garden, geocaching, or just trying something new…the possibilities are endless! Plus, if you’re stuck for inspiration, you’ll find loads of ideas on the GetOutside website – GetOutside.uk.
