The best way to try orienteering is to come out to a local event and get involved. Newcomers are always welcome. Most events have beginner's clinics , and refresher activities. Events are great for both individuals and families, for people out for recreation, or those looking for some challenge.
If you don't have a club in your area but you think it is something that you would like to try please contact us. We would like to support communities to develop their own programs.
