Compass Basics

At Aiken State Park

Have you ever wanted to know how to use a compass? We can show you how! First, learn how to adjust declination on your compass, take a reading from a map, and follow a bearing. Next, practice your new skill on Aiken State Park’s orienteering course! Participants should be at least 10 years old.
