Intro to the Sport of Orienteering

ADULTS & YOUTH AGES 10+

We’re natural-born explorers; all we need is a lively intro to map reading techniques to open up adventures in our local parks.  This is a great way to introduce orienteering, a sport which combines racing with navigation.  Check out:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZOI9kKuA4I.  Learn the fundamentals of map-based navigation and apply them right away in an outdoor orienteering course at Community Park.  Students will learn:

• Elements of a good map
• Commonly mapped features
• Orientation & relocation
• Thumbing & contours
• The joy of knowing where you’re going!

Bring: Outdoor shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and a compass if you have one.

Instructor: Bob Forgrave is former director of the state orienteering youth league and former middle school team coach bob.forgrave@flatbike.net.

Location: The Crow’s Nest at Community Park, then outdoors in the park.

Min 10 / Max 30

Sat | Sep 29 | 1pm–4pm | $12*

*Youth ages 12 and under, accompanied by a registered adult, are half price.
