During this course you will learn how to use a map and compass and orient yourself wherever you are. This is a two day course each day will be from 8:00am tell 4:00pm. The first day will be in a classroom and will cover basic map skills, topographic maps, point plotting, compass orientation, alternate navigation techniques, and how to use a pace count. On the second day we will meet at Lory State Park, South Eltuck where we will run a practical application course and students will navigate the park with only a map and a compass looking for various markers.

This course was designed by two former Recon Marines and brothers with over 18 years of expert experience in land navigation. While in a Recon team our main goal was to go past friendly lines and gather information on the enemy; land navigation was crucial in accomplishing this mission. The techniques taught in this course have been applied in Iraq, Afghanistan, and numerous other countries. This course is a full in-depth look at how to properly use a map and compass while navigating in any environment.
