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.
