Think you know our campus? You can find out on Saturday, December 20, during an orienteering event right here on the UW campus!
Sponsored by SEFS and run by the Cascade Orienteering Club, this one-day event will help you discover more about your campus, the enjoyment of well-made maps, and your ability to make and trust your own decisions in unfamiliar situations.
Orienteering is the sport of navigating with a map and sometimes a compass. The goal is to find your way through a series of checkpoints marked on a map and flagged on the ground. No limed path to follow, no arrow signs, no GPS unit telling you what to do—just your own ability to track where you are and decide for yourself what route from checkpoint to checkpoint works best for you.
For this event, youth and adults from beginner to expert are welcome to participate recreationally or competitively. You can register online for $13 by December 18, and then check-in is from 10 a.m. to noon at Gates Hall.
