Navigation Intensive Class - OHIO

*Pathfinder Classes are not eligible for discounts.

Navigation Intensive

This class was designed to give emphasis on one of the most important and overlooked Woodsman’s skills Navigation (Pathfinding).

We will begin by diving into Primitive Navigation Techniques, to include Shadow Board Navigation work through modern Map use and Route planning, then move on to Self-mapping of an entire grid square for actual real-time information.  Learning how not to get lost should be one of the highest priorities on your list of skills to own.

We will Navigate over variable terrain daily in this class so being able to walk comfortably for 2-6 miles a day should be considered important before attending this course.

See Gear Tab above for the required equipment you must bring.

    Port-a-Pots are located approximately 400 yards from the base camp near the parking area.

    Water will be available from jugs located in Base Camp. We continually check the water supply to make sure it is readily available.

    We do not allow anyone to remain at camp without an instructor present

    If you suffer from a medical condition that requires medication, please bring your prescribed medicines with you. If you undergo surgery or a hospital stay within 30 days of the class, DO NOT attempt this course.

    Highly recommend - physically prepare yourself at least 1-3 months in advance of this class. Based on your “starting point” physical condition.

    • Hiking: uneven terrain will provide the most benefit.
    • Walking: (at least 3-5 times weekly) for 5K
    • Work your way up to a pack weight of 50lb before the class begins

    As the premier school for self-reliance, our training exceeds that of any other school in the nation; so please take it seriously and take the time to physically prepare.
