The orienteering course is a 1 credit hour course designed to develop the students' ability to determine their location on a map, plot a course to travel/navigate over familiar and unfamiliar terrain and end at a known/desired location. We will use US Army standard maps and equipment. This is a detailed introduction to the principles of land navigation and orienteering, to include map reading, compass use, terrain association, pace count, plotting techniques and route planning. We will also cover safety and survival in hot and cold weather environments.
