Map & Compass: Staying Found

October 27 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

$75

Do you like to spend time in the woods? Do you enjoying hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, paddling, motor boating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing…? Are you a Maine Guide or aspiring Maine Guide? Are you a part of a Search & Rescue team? Whether you are a professional rescuer or you enjoy spending time in the backcountry with friends and family this course is for you!  You will learn to read and interpret the language of maps. After you feel confident in map reading we will help you to unlock the mystery of the compass. It is a simple but very effect tool that doesn’t rely on satellites or batteries. The final portion of the course is learning to use them together. We will set a course for you to navigate and test your skills.

The Maine woods are thick and can be featureless. Learning to trust your knowledge and your compass will open up a world of exploration. You will gain the skills to go into more remote locations with self-confidence!

This class runs from 9:00am – 5:00pm. Please bring yourself, your lunch and your sense of direction!
