What is Orienteering?

Description: Orienteering is a navigational sport, using just a map and compass to find your way around a "course" point by point in unfamiliar terrain. Join Ed Scott of the Delaware Orienteering Association as he explains this sport, which is widely popular in Europe, and is often described as a thinking manís game combined with a 5k. Free program, and great for all ages! After some instruction, participants will put their skills to the test on a beginner-level course around the park. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Pre-registration required by July 3rd to 610-374-2944 ext. 2611. Co-sponsor: Spring Township Parks & Recreation.
