FREE Orienteering Beginner Course - 11am to 2pm



Introduction to Orienteering: FREE but you must register (donations very appreciated)

NOTE the orienteering event is still on and in compliance with the PA Covid protocols we require:

The Secretary of Health issued an order requiring anyone who visits from another state to have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to visiting McKaig Nature Center.
If someone cannot get a test or chooses not to, they must quarantine for 14 days prior to visiting McKaig Nature Center.

McKaig protocol:  if you are experiencing any Covid symptoms, please do not visit our park.


A quick review what an orienteering map looks like, how the natural and artificial features of the terrain are depicted on the map, and how to orient the map as you navigate from one position to the next.

Then you'll head out on the beautiful McKaig trails to have an opportunity to practice your new skills on a novice course in the woods. All the control points will be on the trails of the McKaig park. We'll use an electronic timing system so you can see how quickly you navigated to each position.

The McKaig Nature Center is a visitor funded park and receive NO TAX proceeds, any donations are very appreciated.
