Welcome to NEOOC!

Orienteering is a sport that exercises your mind as well as your body. The challenge is to read a detailed topographic map and figure out the best way to get yourself from point A to point B and then to point C… and so on, while you climb hills, cross streams, choose trails and take compass bearings.

We host events that can be enjoyed on foot, on bike, in a canoe or kayak, that take place in the woods, as well as on city streets.

At each event there are navigation course levels from absolute beginner to advanced. And courses can be enjoyed by individuals, families and groups as their choosing.

Ready? See our upcoming events here, and join us for a great day in the beautiful outdoors. Want more? Read more about the history of orienteering, here.

About Orienteering

Orienteering is a competitive international sport that combines racing with navigation. It is a timed race in which individual participants use a specially created, highly detailed map to select routes and navigate through diverse and often unfamiliar terrain and visit control points in sequence.

Courses also can be enjoyed as a walk in the woods, with difficulty levels from beginner to expert offered at most events.
