Route Finding School 
Feb 21-25, 2018
The Chemeketan Route Finding School will teach you how to use a map, compass and GPS. The training is designed for beginners and those who need a refresher. This three-part training focuses on learning and practicing map, compass and GPS skills. Part one "Using Maps" is a two hour lecture and will focus solely on map reading skills. Parts two and three will focus on compass and GPS skills respectively. Both will consist of equal parts lecture and field session practice. Lectures will be held at Loucks Auditorium at the Salem Public Library. Field sessions will be a short distance away at Salem's Riverfront Park. Participants will be given a complimentary orienteering compass. Please bring your own GPS or smart phone for the Sunday session. Space is limited to 100 participants. The cost is only $30 and covers the cost of your Route Finding Notebook, practice maps, compass, refreshments and facility rental.
