Why incorporate geocaching/orienteering into my program?
Geocaching and orienteering are navigational sports that encourage students to use their critical thinking, problem solving, and leadership skills to locate specific destinations. Students become so engaged in trying to find their next caches that they also engage in exercise without even realizing it!
Orienteering: Students use compasses and maps to find a predetermined location called a control point (marked with a flag or kite). Students navigate their way through a series of control points to complete the course and learn essential survival skills along the way.
Geocaching: Students use GPS units to navigate to various caches (containers filled with trinkets) that are preloaded or can be inputted into the GPS. It’s a treasure hunt in the great outdoors that all students will enjoy!
