Orienteering & Geocaching at Voisey’s Brook Park
View or download our Winter Carnival Orienteering Challenge map here!
Description: Orienteering is an outdoor activity that challenges participants to use their navigation and map reading skills to find all 10 orienteering “signs” located in the park. The “signs” are pictures of animals attached on trees throughout the park (picture sizes range from wallet sized to about half a sheet of paper).
Objective: All 10 of the signs locations are represented on the map by a different yellow number, your job is to navigate to all 10 locations and find the corresponding item for each number. For example, if I navigated to #6 and found a Beaver picture I would then write Beaver in the #6 space.
