Compasses, Maps and Pedometers: Plan, Exercise and Learn
This is an active session that will allow the participant to learn the basics of map and compass. After an introduction, small teams will 'orienteer' the adjacent areas around the convention center using an 'adventure' approach. Pedometers will assess how efficient you do the orienteering! This is a great initiative activity for any new site orientation and can be adapted for a variety of populations and age groups. Participants will meet at the information booth near registration.
