    The Community Sport Hub is aiming to engage the communities in the NE Calgary area in learning about the outdoors. We will be teaching youth orienteering, basic map reading, what to pack in a backpack, shelter building, and how to dress for the outdoors. The program will finish with an overnight trip to Camp Riveredge in Calgary on June 28th.
