Central War Gaming - Land Navigation Training

Day/Night Land Navigation Training

14 & 15 October 2017
Near DeKalb, Missouri


Sharpen Your Skills

This course is suitable for anyone who moves about where there are not roads. If you are not totally comfortable with a map and compass, or it's been a long time, this is your opportunity to learn more.

This is not a course for the general outdoorsman, but is specifically geared towards teams operating with specific objectives such as military, police, and search & rescue. Communications, planning, teamwork during movement, safe movement at night, and light discipline are all parts of this course. Bring your whole team and learn together!

You Must Bring

Very little equipment is needed, but you will need to bring some specific things:

If you have any problems sourcing any of this equipment, or have questions, just ask us.

NOTE ON COMPASSES: If you are not sure you have a quality compass, contact us to confirm, and discuss what a more suitable one is for your needs.

You are also encouraged to bring a larger notepad to take class notes with, any other land navigation tools you use, a GPS or GNSS-enabled device (including a phone or tablet with a suitable app), night vision, or any other items you use when hiking in the woods or performing your work in such environments.

CWG will provide printed maps, printed classroom materials and handouts, and radios for portions of the field exercise.

You are encouraged to bring all devices such as night vision you have available. Night vision may be available for rent if there is sufficient interest.

Food and Lodging

To keep costs down, CWG will provide no food or lodging for this event. On site tent camping (no RVs) will be available or you may stay in Atchison Kansas, or St Joseph Missouri. Both are about 15 minutes away from the training area.

Bring lunch with you for Saturday, break time or classroom time will be provided for you to eat.

Time will be provided to go into town for dinner on Saturday, and for you to have breakfast before training starts on Sunday.
