Our first orienteering event took place on Saturday, September 26. On this Saturday, cadets had to wake up super early, and were sent to the Cook County forest preserve where they were put on different locations. Cadets had to face the challenge of getting from one point to the other- Here's the catch, they could NOT use their usual GPS or navigational system, here they had to find their way with a simple map and a compass. Was it worth it? I don't know, you would have to ask them, but they seemed satisfied with the fact that they went out, gave it their all, and accomplished their goals that day.
