Description:

The Navigation session on maps, orienteering and compass work will now be held on Tuesday, August 6th.  

We'll go over and practice some map reading and navigation techniques that are used in orienteering, the sport, but are also useful for general navigation.  We'll also try to fit in some compass practice and a short orienteering course in Pacific Spirit Park.
