Tips: Get the team to come up with a song to help them on their way.
If your team are already used to walking get them to lead the team based on the planned route or think about pacing and distances.
Look for fresh water sources and animal tracks, ask the team to be mindful of their surroundings.

Always tell someone where you are going and when you are expected back.
Keep your team sizes to a manageable number and follow the ratio’s within POR and the activity factsheets.
