The tree farm and the whole Nominingue property are used in orienteering. Campers are introduced to various maps – topographical and orienteering, and learn to recognize both map symbols and to read the terrain. They also learn how to use a compass, to follow a bearing and to orient a map. As their skills develop, campers begin to apply them to complete a course, to navigate during their canoe trip and to participate in a night orienteering competition.
