Interested in orienteering but don’t know where, or how, to start? Come on out to our next Beginner Clinic at G Ross Lord Park. We’ll show you how to use a compass, how to read an orienteering map, and walk with you through an orienteering course.

Note that there are limited spots per session. Pre-registration is required, the day before the intended clinic, to guarantee your spot. Drop-in registration will be accepted if there are spots available, but there is no guarantee.

The session will be between 60 and 90 minutes and will cover the following topics:
- introduction to Orienteering
- map reading basics
- compass basics
- guided walk of the beginners course (~2km), where we will discuss navigation and will try to find the checkpoints.
 
Please dress according to the weather conditions and wear hiking shoes/boots.
Start time Wednesday, August 19th, 6:00 pm
