Want to learn camping, fishing or orienteering but don't know where to start? Looking to get the family involved but need a guide to show you the way?

Follow the Pathways to Adventure.

The 2002 Pathways to Adventure Tour kicks off Saturday with a stop at Laguna Niguel Lake from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Kids and parents will be introduced to rods and reels, fishing tackle, tents, sleeping bags, lanterns, backpacks and stoves.

They will learn the basics of camping, fishing and orienteering in a program designed to educate newcomers.

"The whole idea is geared for entry-level people," said Steve Miller, program director. "So if a person always wanted to take a kid fishing or camping and wondered, 'How do I get started?' that's what this concept is all about. And it's for adults just as much for the kids."

Seven stations with specially designed booths will be set up near the fishing concession building.

The stations include camping, orienteering, pack and hike, rods and reels, fish biology, tackle and casting. Afterward, kids 12 and under can fish the lake for free.

The Pathways to Adventure program is free and takes about an hour.

Another free Pathways event will be held April 6 at Bonelli Regional Park, a.k.a. Puddingstone Reservoir, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For details, call Pathways to Adventure at (909) 245-8698.
