WILDERNESS NAVIGATION (12:30-5:00 PM // $50/person)
Outdoor navigation skills are essential for adventuring and exploring the wilderness. It’s easy to become lost without signal, rendering your GPS useless. Many modern navigation tools are excellent, but do you know what to do when they fail? Can you find your way without devices? In American Survival Co.’s outdoor navigation class you will learn multiple techniques for wilderness navigation, so you can get yourself safely to your destination. This class is great for hikers, backpackers, hunters, campers and adventurers. However, outdoor navigation is useful in many survival situations for those who never expect to be lost or stranded in the wilderness, this skill set is extremely valuable for all people to hone.
