Participants will learn how to avoid getting lost and what to do if you become lost. The main focus of this program is to teach children how to stay safe in a situation where they are separated from a group or find themselves lost off the trail. When that happens, there are several things that children can be taught improve their chances of safely reuniting with their party. Children need to know how to be safe in the woods and parents need to be sure that every outing is appropriate for the child's ability and interest level, while respecting the abilities and limitations of each person.
