 Do you feel uncomfortable about taking your Unit into new locations?
 Do you want to improve your navigation and route-finding skills?
 Have you considered orienteering as an activity for improving your Scouts’ map and compass skills?
A course in navigation and orienteering will be conducted by the members of GLAAC-HAT on November 10, 2018 at the Firestone Scout Reservation. We will begin Saturday with discussions of the tools of navigation and strategies for their utilization. There will be demonstrations of various types of maps and compasses. Topics will include route finding, collecting terrain features, the Global Positioning System (GPS), disoriented, avoidance of getting lost, and getting “un-lost”. The special problems and techniques associated with route finding on the snow
and in desert terrain will be discussed. These activities will be followed by participant-led map-hikes which use the
detailed orienteering map for Firestone.
A field experience will be held, in association with the Los Angeles Orienteering Club, on a date to be announced.
Participants will help officiate in an LAOC Orienteering meet.
A fee of $15.00 is charged for this training. Registration is required by October 26, 2018 as space is limited. This
fee covers the cost of the outing including the day use fee at Firestone including course maps and materials.  Attending a Los Angeles Orienteeering Club event will be a separate outing and an additional fee is payable to that
Club. Additional information about the Los Angeles Orienteering Club will be presented and can also be be found
on its web site, http://LosAngelesOrienteering.org/drupal. Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch.
Hike Aid 3, “Full Dimension High Adventure Training”, has a complete discussion of the training programs of the
GLAAC-HAT. It may be downloaded from the Council High Adventure website at http://glaachat.org/HikeAids.html.
