We are pleased to announce our new youth orienteering program for girls and boys 10 to 14 years old. Over the course of 8 weeks participants will enjoy the outdoor adventures of exploring trails, finding objects, and cross country running while learning some map reading and navigation skills.
Think of it as Geocaching to a whole new level of skill and fitness. We have designed the program with the following broad goals for participants, all taught through a variety of activities and exercises designed to keep kids moving and engaged:
- To make friends.
- To enjoy being outdoors and in the woods and exploring, playing, and running in the woods and other ‘wild’ environments both on and off trail.
- After one or two seasons, they should be able to confidently navigate around novice level orienteering courses and more challenging park courses.
- To improve their physical fitness, running, and agility.
