YNSA Scheme

Young Navigator Star Award

The focus of the Young Navigator awards is to encourage exploration and journeying in local areas using simple maps such as street maps, pictorial park maps and orienteering maps. There is a gradual learning progression via One Star (Bronze), Two Star (Silver) and Three Star (Gold) levels with certificates and badges available for achieving candidates.

The awards are aimed at all age groups and abilities.  The Young Navigator Star courses are fantastic for youngsters to actively learn outside the classroom, and the Gold level is often used as a lead-in for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.


The syllabus outline below indicates the main intentions at each level:


One Star (Bronze)

Make simple maps of interior and exterior building features.

Undertake journeys around the inside and outside of a building using a map.

Orientate the map at different locations.


Two Star (Silver)
