Lots of people came out to learn about orienteering last week at North Chagrin. Here are some photos from the day. If you have additional, feel free to send them our way for posting.
Join the Orienteering for Beginners event to learn about the sport of orienteering, how to work the map and compass, and ultimately, how to be successful on a beginner course.
We were just getting started with 30 pre-registered scouts, when 12 more showed up to learn about orienteering! A few more tables and chairs later, and we were all learning about the basics of orienteering. Some of the requirements for the Boy Scout Merit Badge for orienteering were covered, and scouts practiced taking compass bearings, taking their pace count, and about land forms, orienteering map features, and some of the basic techniques an orienteer uses while on a course.

Join us to learn more about the sport of orienteering, and learn how to use a map and compass to navigate around the campus, while getting some exercise. We’ll provide instruction and guidance, and have all levels of courses available, from white to red. Map Included / compass for loan. NOTE!!! Don’t need instruction? No worries – come run the sprint courses on this beautiful campus, where plenty of challenges await even the most experienced orienteer!
