Enjoy the great outdoors on Father’s Day weekend and learn how to use a compass. Whether you are just getting started or have experience in orienteering, we’ve got something for you!
The Novice Course is suitable for all ages. The course is quite small, in a shaded place, and near a playground/picnic area. Great for young ones to try their hand at learning navigation! Or a simple course for those who are just learning the art of orienteering!
The Challenging Course is no understatement. To participate, it is highly recommended that you wear boots, long pants, and a hat. It takes a while, so bring plenty of water. The course is located off-trail and is exposed to the sun. Prepare accordingly and put your navigational skills to the test!
Registration opens one month prior to the event. Space in the workshop is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis, so call to reserve your spot soon!
