ADVENTURING WITH KIDS, presented by Chris Hughson, Todd Williams and Jennifer Green

Please join us for a presentation and discussion by ADK-GVC members Chris Hughson, Todd Williams and Jennifer Green on outdoor adventures and skill building with children. Maybe you used to adventure yourself, or you’ve never done much outdoors, or perhaps you’re somewhere in between, and you’re interested in taking up outdoor pursuits with your family and want to know where to start.

Whatever your outdoor experience is, our presenters will share their personal stories and things they learned the hard way when adventuring with their children. It will inspire and guide you as you take on what are sure to be your most rewarding adventures yet. Jennifer teaches at the RMSC Forest School. She will share about the outdoor skills building program designed for 5-12 yr. olds at the Cumming Nature Center.

MAP & COMPASS - PART I, presented by Barb Brenner

A compass is a handy tool to take with you on your outdoor adventure. Our February workshop will review how to take a bearing and how to use a bearing both from magnetic north in the field (aka the earth) and from true north found on a map. Our March workshop will continue our compass work focusing on the confusing topic of declination, an angle formed by the difference between magnetic north caused by the earth and true north printed on a map.
