Participants will develop a foundation in compass use through a series of progressively more challenging activities.
Participants will develop a foundation in GPS use with emphasis placed on entering coordinates, traveling to a location, and safety precautions.
Using only a map, participants search for control markers. This activity can be tailored for varying degrees of difficulties.
Using a compass and a photo taken somewhere on site, participants must determine the bearing that the photographer was facing.
In an epic adventure for the ages, teams will travel far and wide in a valiant effort to earn the food they need to survive! Some will win, some will lose…(but all will enjoy a snack!)
