About the Event
Join Newton Parks & Recreation and Navigation Games for a 4 week program to develop orienteering and map reading skills. Play a variety of games to learn the skills needed in orienteering like staying within boundaries, reading a map, finding things in order, and develop decision making skills to locate objects in the fastest time. Different courses will be set up each week. This scavenger hunt-like activity will keep kids moving and exploring the great outdoors in a way that enhances spatial awareness, positive feelings around the outdoors and promotes environmental stewardship. Our programs for 2nd - 6th grade will include a variety of games to prepare children for completing courses on the trails. Participants will be grouped with other participants and a program staff person to complete activities.
