"I have been running camp and adventure programs for many years now, and I was highly impressed with the quality of Navigation Games as a guest at my summer nature camps. With our options so limited by the current pandemic, they ended up being a perfect fit for a safe, fun, and educational outdoor activity. We could tell that the leaders were truly passionate about orienteering and cared about delivering the best program possible. The activities were engaging, age-appropriate, and thoughtfully organized. There was clearly a lot of prep work ahead of time for the activities and it showed! My campers all had a great time and came out with increased spatial awareness and navigation skills. I can’t recommend them highly enough!"

- Stephanie Springer, Brookline Recreation

In other news: Happy to have had a call with Ethan and the new CRLS high school orienteering team coach. The best thing is that someone other than us is coaching!

Bicycling 3:00:00 [2]

Biked to ferry and then PTown to Orleans. The bike ran out of charge at the bottom of the last hill to the house. Relieved it didn't die earlier! Also really disappointed - they said it should go at least 40 miles on a charge. And I was mostly on the "Tour" mode (2nd out of 4 possible settings).

I enjoyed talking with folks from QOC and OCIN last night about the Youth Mapping Project. (That's a link to the slide deck.)

It was good to get questions, because I don't always realize that people can't read my mind. For example, a major goal of the project is to develop mappers (more & better), and provide a means for mappers to get paid for their work, while also expanding youth orienteering in the country.

When we make forward progress with Navigation Games, in a big way, toward our big goal of every kid getting orienteering in school, it is awesome but also scary. Today we had a meeting with the PE curriculum team. I get imposter syndrome - I'm not a PE teacher; I'm not trained in curriculum development. We were talking about a huge expansion in our curriculum: from 3rd grade to 5 grades (Junior Kindergarten through 3rd grade) - AND, having both in-person and remote versions. It went OK; we'll see if they can find funding. It's nice how positive the teachers are and how much they like the orienteering unit we've done so far.


I helped my dad self-publish a book of his poetry. David created the drawings.

Bicycling 3:00:00 [3]

Biked from Orleans to Provincetown and then ferry dock to home. Beautiful. Used ebike but it's the kind where I still do work - just allows me to go further.
