What is Orienteering?
Orienteering is a sport wherein participants must navigate from one point to another using a map.
Events can be designed where the participants prove their arrival by doing a special activity, solving a problem, answering a question or retrieving an object. Events can be designed for all ages from preschool through senior citizens. The possibilities are only limited by one's imagination.
