Navigation Games


Navigation Games mission is to teach children how to read maps, navigate, work together, make good decisions, handle adversity and connect to nature, through the sport of orienteering.

Orienteering is a sport where participants find checkpoints marked on a map. It’s basically a more awesome version of a scavenger hunt that’s fun for all ages, and can be done casually or competitively. There are many different ways to orienteer, and many different activities that involve orienteering skills. Read more about our various navigation games.
