Event Description

Join Dane County Parks and On the Map for a map and compass navigation activity called "orienteering." The essential goal of orienteering is “staying on the map” -- knowing where you are at all times. In this program you will learn the basic elements of map-reading and compass use. Participants (teams or individuals) use a highly-detailed map to navigate to locations, where they’ll find a numbered flag and use a special “punch” to prove they visited the site.  This event is able to accommodate a wide variety of skill levels and age ranges. Event will occur rain or shine, please dress for the weather. 

You may participate in this program as an individual or on a team. We recommend that teams be four or fewer individuals. If you are registering for a team, you only need one individual to register. 

Cost: $20 per team or $10 per individual. 

Register here!  Drop-ins welcome, however space is limited.
