Are you a teacher or coach in the Massachusetts area who would like to bring orienteering to your classroom? We'd love to help!
We typically charge a fee for our services but we will never say no if your school can't afford to pay. Please contact us with any questions!
Navigation Games can come to your school and conduct a workshop on bringing orienteering into your classroom or after-school program.
The enthusiastic founders of Navigation Games have been successfully running orienteering field trips in Cambridge public schools for over five years. Typically we'll conduct a classroom day with an introduction to the map and navigation and a bit of schoolyard orienteering, followed by a field trip to the Middlesex Fells for a full day outdoor experience in the following week. The program can be adapted to your school's needs.
Take a look at our 8-class High School unit plan and 4-class K-5 unit plan in our MAHPERD 2018 public resources folder.
