Mapping & Orienteering

Orienteering is a sport that exercises your mind as well as your body. The challenge is to read a detailed topographic map and figure out the best way to get yourself from point A to point B over hills, across streams, and along trails. You and your team will navigate four color-coded courses across campus using a map to find control points along the way. By reading and orienting your map, you can locate all of the controls on each course and earn a prize!

In this session, campers will explore the different jobs an Archaeologist performs. In addition, campers will study a specific artifact and try to determine what it is, evaluate bags of artifacts to determine which of four possible societies are represented, study different arrowheads and identify the era in which it was made, and finally unearth pot sherds and reassemble them.
