Take a look at Facebook page: Bolton Valley Backcountry Adventures for training opportunities in Vermont for Orienteering, hiking, snowshoeing and rappelling
Are they close to Northfield VT?
A couple of years ago a high school JROTC student in Florida graduated and moved on to the military program at Norwich U. She was dead keen on orienteering. She would be an asset to helping with orienteering instruction. (She ws so keeen on orienteering that when the family moved some 50 miles away from where she had been going to school she drove every day the 100 miles return so she could stay involved in the school's orienteering team. (Well there might have been a boy in the picture, too, but she was good at orienteering)
