Are you interested in navigating the world with a good ole’ map and compass but don’t know how. Come learn with our MEC professional.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Understand concepts and symbols on a topographic map
  • Understand the features basic to all compasses, as well as additional features that may be desirable in a compass intended for backcountry navigation
