Wish you were more confident getting around with the pre-GPS technology known as “Map & Compass?” Wish you were one of those gals who knew how to use a map and compass at all? Are you a total novice with these things but haven’t had a good opportunity to learn without getting yourself hopelessly lost? Well, grab some girlfriends, pack the car, and meet us at Mt. Chase Lodge for a weekend of delicious food, map & compass skills, and the opportunity to learn in a no-stress environment.

Included in the weekend rate are two nights of lodging & campfire time, hands-on experience,  two dinners, two ample breakfasts, two lunches, and lots of laughs. NO COMPASS SKILLS NECESSARY - INTENDED FOR ACTUAL BEGINNERS!

Please bring an orienteering or baseplate compass (click here to purchase), a USGS Quadrangle of your favorite place to play (click here to purchase), adequate footwear and clothing to be comfortable walking up a mountain, and your willingness to try!
