Every year, SMS seventh-grade physical education students spend a month learning orienteering skills. Orienteering is a sport where people find their way to various checkpoints across a rough country while using a map and a compass. The focus is for the students to learn these essential skills and use them while hiking in the BH National Forest. Students work with a partner and hike over several miles throughout the day. There are two large groups taken up to a trailhead on two separate days. Funding covers the costs of busing.
