The Orienteering for Beginners Class teaches those from absolute beginners to relative novices the orienteering skills needed to participate confidently in the sport. Instruction is given by a seasoned orienteer to a small group. This program includes a lecture session, a map hike with your instructor, and a short beginner-level (white) course that you will complete on your own. Equipment: sturdy walking or hiking shoes and a simple baseplate compass (easiest to learn with). Online registration before the event is encouraged. The fee for this program is $10 per registration (individual or small group together) which will be collected at the event. Registration will occur from 10:30 am to 11:00, with instruction beginning promptly at 11:00 am.
