Compass Navigation Workshop

Registration closed


  • Group size: 8
  • Instructor: REI Specialist

Navigating in the backcountry is a cinch when you have a compass and you know how to use it! In this hands-on workshop you'll practice planning a route by taking both map and compass bearings, accounting for declination, and locating yourself on a map using triangulation. Experience reading a topographic map is strongly recommended.


    Held in the classroom at REI Virginia Beach. To enhance your navigation education, we suggest also registering for the Map Reading Workshop the previous evening. Email with any questions.
