Orienteering is an activity in which participants find their way to various checkpoints with the aid of a map and compass. Orienteering can be competitive (groups compete to finish finding all the check-points with the lowest time) or a fun leisure activity. MSCR has three “courses” located at the Madison School Forest. The courses vary in difficulty and length to allow for each group to choose the best challenge for themselves. Orienteering at the School Forest is best for ages 7 years and up (however, younger participants with the help of an adult still enjoy the activity) and for groups of 5 or less. MSCR provides participants the course maps, 1-2 compasses, markers for recording and directions on how to use the map and compass to find the checkpoints (no experience necessary). Groups are assigned time slots for arrival to avoid too many people gathering in one space at the same time. Only one person per group needs to register and you must register online to participate. An adult over 18 must participate with youth participants under the age of 16.
