Upcoming Events

Navigating with Anthony Kreke

January 19, 2019 (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM )

Every great adventurer has had to master navigation skills to find their way. Now it's your turn! Learn the basics of using a map and compass to find your way around. We’ll spend some time getting familiar with the tools, then we’ll go on a compass-led scavenger hunt. You will learn how to use a compass, read a map, find your bearings, and chart a course toward your destination, while practicing problem-solving and teamwork.

Registration is required. Limit will be 25 families. We will be building backpacks for you to use on your first adventure! One backpack per family.
