Dartford Orienteering Klubb (DFOK) will use the outdoor sport of orienteering to enable schools and pupils to engage with and better undestand the landscape of the Darent Valley, and to enable them to embed orienteering within the National Curriculum.

DFOK will map school grounds and equip teachers with ideas of how to use orienteering across multiple subjects to enhance learning. During this time, pupils will have developed a better understanding and appreciation of their local heritage as well as a keen interest in a growing outdoor sport that uses the landscape as a canvas for its activities. It will also support a wide audience to engage in more challenging tests for navigation skills in the local countryside such as permanent orienteering courses (POCs).
