Feeling lost or directionally challenged?  Project SAIL (Seminars for Advanced and Innovative Learning) through Lancaster- Lebanon IU13 is offering a camp that will enable students, entering grades 6-8, to spend time outside becoming familiar with a variety of directional tools.  Partnering with the Lancaster Environmental Center, this IU 13 Project SAIL camp will put students’ navigation skills to the “test” in real life situations.  Participants will gain confidence in their ability to find their way in the wilderness while exploring Lancaster woodlands.  Campers will get the opportunity to:

  • Participate in live videoconferences to understand the use of satellites, GPS technology and navigational problem solving,
  • Learn to use a compass and topographical maps to navigate through the woods,
  • Explore latitude and longitude in an interactive way,
  • Work as a team to complete a scavenger hunt using GPS units,
  • Learn survival skills such as building a shelter, finding water, building a fire, and identifying edible plants and insects.

Through these activities, campers will learn important things about the environment in which they live while enjoying outdoor experiences, team-building, problem solving, and exercise.   Camp is aligned with PA Academic Standards.
