Details

Students will be split into teams accompanied by instructors.  There will be 6/7 waypoints to locate.  The objective of the day will be to navigate from waypoint to waypoint, using a map and compass.  Various techniques for navigating will be used throughout the day.  Each student will be given the responsibility of choosing the technique used to reach a waypoint.



Students will be expected to be prepared for an all-day hike.  You will need to have a day-pack, enough food and drink for the day, carry the 10 Essentials and wear appropriate clothing.  Students should be prepared for changing and possibly inclement weather conditions.  Maps will be provided for use in the field, but you will need to have your own compass.  Use of a GPS is not allowed.  Your instructor will have one for backup.
