This course is designed for anyone looking to learn the skills that it takes to navigate by map and compass in the wilderness. Using a systematic approach, we will introduce you to the lifetime skill of orienteering. As your confidence grows, you will be continuously challenged to move longer distances with more precision, thus increasing your sense of independence in the wilderness. Whether you an outdoor professional, competitive adventure racer or just someone looking for the freedom of knowing where you are in the backcountry, this course will give your skills to never get lost again.
There are no Prerequisites for this class, but you must be comfortable walking alone in the wilderness for several hours on your own. This course requires students to walk up 15 miles over 2 days in varied and rugged terrain.
