Orienteering at Camp Tongawood is your chance to learn how to use a compass and the basics of mapping then solve an epic puzzle that will require your newly learned navigational skills! You will follow one of our six tree courses which will lead you to the final clue at the last tree.
Girls will have an opportunity to learn the history of navigation, how compasses work, and work together to complete the courses.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a orienteering session, and we will work to schedule a time for our professionally trained staff to work with your troop. Requests must be made at least one month prior to the desired date.
Are you an experienced orienteering troop leader and want to conduct a self-guided experience for your troop? See the Orienteering section of our main STEM Activity Resources page for information about reserving compasses. Course instructions can be found at Camp Tongawood on the “START” tree.
