Overview:

Compasses have been used for navigation for nearly 2000 years. From the North Star to GPS, we have wondered and hoped to find our way.  Join a Ranger to learn basic orienteering skills, compasses will be provided for the program and put your new found skill to use.  A series of markers will be placed around the park, follow the coordinates give to each one and mark that you visited it.  Kids can earn a Junior Ranger Badge for completing the course.  

Good for BSA and GSA groups looking to earn a badge.
