Intro to Orienteering

Date and Time

Wednesday, September 18, 2013
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


  • FH 16


Cost:  FREE

Orienteering is a must-have skill for anyone who is interested in traveling in the backcountry.  This workshop will explain the basics of reading a topographic map, plotting coordinates, and navigating with a map and compass. 

With our new shorter format, this workshop will not include hands-on practice course in the ravines as in years past.  However, compasses will be made available and a course in the ravines will still be setup for participants to practice on their own. 

Please register on Seminar by Monday, Sept. 16.  Follow the link below.

Note: you must be a GV student or staff member to register on Seminar.  Please contact the Climbing Center if you would like to register family members.  616.331.3226,
