Introduction to Orienteering with New England Orienteering Club

March 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


What is orienteering?  Essentially it’s a hike and scavenger hunt all mixed into one.  Participants use a detailed map to find specific checkpoints, or controls, in the woods.  Everyone can go at their own pace.  Want to run?  Great!  Want to walk?  That’s great too!  This introductory event held at Auburndale Park (The Cove) will offer small group trainings with an instructor to teach the basics of orienteering and get you out on an orienteering course.

Register online for the time slot that works best for you.  This event includes approximately 30 minutes of training and time to head out on the trails to complete a course.  The fee is $5.00 per person and advanced registration for this event is required through Newton Parks and Recreation at https://newtonma.myrec.com/info/activities/program_details.aspx?ProgramID=30240
