Forest Fundamentals sessions introduce you to key off-track navigation skills. The sessions are hands-on as we focus on map and contour interpretation as well as skills for cross-country navigation and orienteering. Compass use is introduced as well as tools to help you navigate where you want to go. Our team of experienced and friendly coaches are ready to help you progress your navigation skills.
These sessions are perfect for orienteers wishing to progress to bush events or to improve skills for moderate level orienteering. Skills are also transferable to adventure racing, bushwalking and rogaining. We welcome all ages and experience levels but generally recommend a minimum age of 12 years for these sessions.
