Back to the Basics – Map, Compass and Bushcraft Skills

Where am I? How far is it to the next destination? What happens if I get lost? These are a few of the most frequently asked questions in wilderness travel. The ability to navigate accurately is one of the most important skills for anyone heading into the wilderness. The weather and visibility can change rapidly, making it especially important for hikers and paddlers to be able to navigate effectively even in limited visibility, and having the right set of skills in the event of an emergency.

This basic 2-day program aims to give you an introduction to planning and navigating with the use of a map and compass, and will provide you with the skills required to navigate in both summer and winter, with no trails, and in all weather conditions. It will also equip you with a good foundation of bushcraft skills to succeed and survive in the wilderness. The program will have classroom elements, in field sessions and practices within the Wildlife Research Station in Algonquin Park.

Package includes:

  • One night at the Wildlife Research Station Cabins
