SPRINGFIELD TWP. (FOX19) -- Winton Woods park hosts orienteering programs Saturday and Sunday.
Orienteering is a sport in which participants use an accurate, detailed map to find points in the landscape. It can be enjoyed as a hike in the woods or as a competitive sport, according to the Miami Valley Orienteering Club in Dayton.
On Saturday, beginners of all ages can get the basics at the noon Orienteering I program. Stick around for Orienteering II at 2 p.m. to use your new skills to follow a bearing, travel around large obstacles and get back on the right track.
The series wraps up on Sunday with Orienteering III where graduates of Orienteering II will participate in more hands-on activities that will demonstrate how a map and compass can save your life.
