Learn the basics of orienteering with a map and compass while boosting your confidence in traveling off the beaten path. We will cover compass use, declination, topographic map reading, pacing, walking a straight line, following a bearing, how to select and use a GPS unit, and barehanded navigation using celestial aids. This course is entirely field-based and involves plenty of hands-on practice and cross-country navigation exercises to make the skills come alive.
This is given as a 1 Day Course.
