The Club provides a variety of map and compass training programs in the spring and fall plus "hands-on" opportunities on certain outings throughout the year, to enable its leaders and other Club members to learn and hone back-country navigation skills. Instruction is focused on how to interpret topographic maps and use them in conjunction with a modern sighting compass in preparation for and during on-trail and off-trail adventures. Our clinics and facilitated sessions are conducted in groups of no more than three to ensure the highest quality level of learning. Our calendar of clinics for this year is shown below.
