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. The event:
In orienteering, participants receive a map of an area which shows a series of sites to visit. Participants develop strategies to navigate from one site to another.

The challenge:
Find the most efficient route to all of the locations and prove you were there.

Proof of Arrival:
In a regular orienteering meet, team members use a special mark located at each station to punch a control card.
