PCHS NJROTC Cadets Attend Orienteering Camp

PCHS NJROTC Cadets Attend Orienteering Camp

Seven PCHS NJROTC cadets participated in an Orienteering Camp and Competition hosted by Stockbridge High School NJROTC at Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge, GA from Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7, 2014. The camp included over 200 NJROTC cadets from high schools all over Georgia. Cadets were trained in map reading, using magnetic compasses, and running through a set of control points based on their map reading and terrain exploration skills over the 2 day camp. Cadets were then pitted against each other on an unknown course of geographic points to navigate from start to finish seeing who would finish with the fastest times. Cadet Heather Bedgood and Cadet Alivia Mohr earned medals for finishing in the top 10 on the female course. Cadet Bedgood also earned a medal for her top 5 results on the academic test.  All of the cadets received certificates for successfully completing the camp on Sunday, September 7.
