Orienteering for Kids!

Orienteering for kids provides a fun and safe environment for learning directions and to use a map. These skills help children and youth feel confident outdoors. The sessions include games that help kids learn map symbols and understand maps. We will also do lots of treasure hunts! Older kids may also try timing their races and making their own maps.

Malin Hansen is a certified orienteering coach. She received her training in Alberta where she also coached orienteering to children and youth. Her interest in orienteering stems from her interest in the outdoors and the goal of getting more kids outside.

When registering you must agree to the following: "I will follow the COVID 19 health and safety guidelines which include hand sanitizing as necessary, wearing a mask when a 6 foot distance cannot be maintained and practicing social distancing of 6 feet as much as possible. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided by the event organizers. Please bring your own if you have them. We are hoping that a 6 feet distance can be maintained throughout the whole session so that masking will not be necessary."
