Maps & Mountains | Kids Orienteering
Join ACES this week to learn basic navigation skills you can use your whole life! This hands-on experience focuses on compass use as well as map reading and exploring the natural landscape. Navigation games, scavenger hunts, and plain old fun are features of this one-day outing. The group will travel to the top of Aspen Mountain on the gondola to practice their newly acquired skills. Each student will take home their own compass so that they can continue their explorations.
What To Bring:
Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!
How To Get There:
Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Hallam Lake whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.
BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to Hallam Lake in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more.
PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Hallam Lake visitors only. Please park efficiently. Drop-off overflow parking for Hallam Lake programs is available in the West End (2 hour free parking) with an easy walk down the stairs to the center. We are an IDLE FREE community.
