Map & Compass: Staying Found


Sunday, April 30th

9am – 4pm | All ages and abilities

12 and under accompanied by an adult.

In this world of electronics it is easy to lose site of the importance of using basic tools. Map & Compass is an example of this more basic technology. It does not require satellites or electricity to keep charged and can save your life. Plus its fun to learn and fun to use!

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 – 4:00pm. Please bring yourself, a hearty lunch and your sense of direction!
