Art of Navigation
While some seek the wilderness to lose themselves metaphorically, no one wants to actually get lost! In addition to making your backpacking and hiking safer, mastering the art of navigation opens up new worlds in the wilderness as you grow comfortable exploring far and wide on and off trail.
This degree covers the essentials of map and compass, reading the landscape, natural navigation, and more. We’ll start with an NYC course to learn the basics, and then put those skills to work on two upstate day hikes. You’ll also be amazed to see the impact this degree has on the way you see and navigate the city and roads as you learn to navigate in the wilderness.
