Orienteering Course (N200)


2 Days - $280
Contact us for this specialized training.

Orienteering is a sport - a cross-country race using a map and compass. Generally the points are already plotted on the map or are copied from a master map by the contestants using terrain features rather than a grid system. This skill-set requires a keen understanding of map reading and good compass and pace skills. Orienteering can be done at a run or a walk; competitions are full speed! This is a good course for those who visit public parks and forests where topographical maps are available but grid systems are not on the map. You can use the skills taught in our Orienteering Course to enjoy the outdoors and stay found!

All bonuses and offers are contingent upon complete payment and attendance of the course. While Fox Kits will make every effort to contact you one month prior to the course start date to confirm your attendance we will automatically charge your card for the balance of the tuition fee two weeks prior to the first day of class. If rescheduling becomes necessary we will be happy to work with you; all payments will be applied to future training. It is your responsibility to confirm or reschedule! Requests for rescheduling must be received no later than two weeks prior to course start date at which time services are considered to have been rendered and your seat is confirmed (we can't fill vacated seats on that short a notice.) In such cases your seat is transferrable if you can find someone to attend in your place so long as they qualify for attendance.
