Date: January 25, 2021 AT 6 PM

Orienteering is a wonderful sport that combines running through wonderful places in the world with navigation with a map. You get to enjoy the great outdoors while challenging both your physical body and mind.

If you aren’t a runner, that’s OK as you can still enjoy orienteering.

And even in the world of social distancing, there are many orienteering courses available to complete with your troop or with mom and dad. Information on these will be shared in class.

This high paced 2-hour course will cover the basics of navigating with a map and compass and how to take part in a navigation course. These are also the same skill you will for exploring the wilderness, negotiating the concrete jungle, or just planning out a hike.
