Join us to learn more about the sport of orienteering, and learn how to use a map and compass to navigate around the campus, while getting some exercise. We’ll provide instruction and guidance, and have all levels of courses available, from white to red. Map Included / compass for loan. NOTE!!! Don’t need instruction? No worries – come run the sprint courses on this beautiful campus, where plenty of challenges await even the most experienced orienteer!
There are a few events directly geared for scouts this year – the Merit Badge Workshop on March 12, and the Orienteering Championships in September (17+18). Here’s more information about both.
Join this class to begin working on your orienteering merit badge requirements for Scouts. Please note – the orienteering merit badge cannot be completed in one day – Scouts will have the opportunity to complete most of the requirements. The most practical way to complete the rest of the requirements is to participate in future NEOOC events. Of course, scouts and troops can also complete the requirements on their own. Pre-registration is REQUIRED!
2016 is here, and we’re ready with a host of orienteering events. See the entire event schedule for the year below, in various formats. Feel free to print out and distribute both the schedule and general orienteering flyer (all in PDF format below) to friends and family. We look forward to seeing you in the woods soon!
