What is Orienteering ?

Orienteering is the skill of navigating through an unfamiliar area using a detailed map and perhaps a magnetic compass. It can be either an enjoyable recreational activity for all ages or a competitive sport involving endurance and ingenuity. Events usually take place in city, county, or state parks, and beginner courses are available at every event. Come join us! Beginners and non-members are always welcome. "Remember, orienteering is like a treasure hunt; only an 'O' marks the spot."
