Presented by the Friends of Frontenac.

(9 am - 4 pm)

Frontenac Provincial Park visitor centre


This one-day workshop teaches the basics of navigating with only a map.

Topics will cover:

  • information found on a map,
  • using the Grid Reference System,
  • Measuring Distance,
  • Contour Lines,
  • WETMan,
  • and Triangulation.  

You will also learn to tell direction using the sun, and will practice your new skills through a 3-km guided hike along Doe Lake.  
Experienced map users will gain new knowledge, and inexperienced students will leave, confident and ready to solo-hike on marked trails.

Please note, this course is one of three Navigation Courses, and is a prerequisite for the next two levels (Level 2, Navigation with Map & Compass, and Level 3, Navigation with Map, Compass & GPS).

Level 1 - Map Navigation Course

  • This course is non-refundable. If you are unable to attend, please contact the instructor by email.

    As we are unable to predict future COVID restrictions if courses are cancelled we will offer students the option to take a spot on the next session or to collect a refund.
