Families are being encouraged to explore their local park as part of a new series of Xplorer events to be held at Hornscroft Park in Bolsover.
Bolsover District Council and Bolsover District Village Games have joined forces to provide the Xplorer events which are family friendly navigational challenges that offer fun, adventure and education for all ages.
Developed by British Orienteering, Xplorer gives children the chance to gain new skills such as map reading, decision making and working as a team whilst having a great adventure in their local park.
Xplorer is like searching for treasure, where participants find markers and complete various challenges on their hunt.
Starting on Sunday 28th June 2015 as part of the Bolsover Gala on Hornscroft Park, these events are an excellent way to get active with the kids before and during the school summer holidays.
So why not make a date to attend these fun events:
- Sunday 28th June - Bolsover Gala - all day event - 10-4pm
- Monday 27th July - 1-3pm
- Thursday 30th July - 1-3pm
- Monday 3rd August - 1-3pm
- Saturday 8th August - Freedom Community Family Fun Day - 11:30-4pm
- Monday 17th August - 1-3pm
