After successful shelters had been built, the teams had to solve a puzzle and learn to read a map with our orienteering challenge. The aim was to find your way around the forest, using the map and searching for hidden numbers on trees. Each number on the tree had an accompanying letter, the aim was to be the first team to solve the puzzle and spell the word.
