Junior Camp 2020

We have organised an orienteering camp with accommodation at Swan Valley Adventure Centre, Middle Swan, and activities on site and nearby ‘O’ maps for two days and two nights at the start of the July School holidays. These will be led by our coaches: Rachel West and Craig Dufty

  • We are looking for young people who enjoy orienteering, want to learn more about it and have a fun time with other young people.
  • The camp will start at 10.30am Saturday 4th July 2020 at Swan Valley AC. Parents are to bring their child to this location. If this is not possible please indicate this on the registration form and we will try to find alternative transport.
  • Activities will include participation in the Jorgensen Park event in Kalamunda on Sunday 5th (see OWA event page for further details). Participants will be transported to and from the event by bus. Parents are encouraged to join us on the day.
  • The camp will finish at 10.30am, Monday 6th July at Swan Valley AC. Parents are asked to pick up their children from this site. Again, if this is impossible please indicate this on the registration form.
  • The camp is subsidised by OWA so will only cost $150 per junior orienteer. This includes accommodation, meals and activities.
  • The camp is open to anyone aged from 10 to 17 years who has participated in at least one bush event or Navdash event in addition to any school events and is an OWA full member. If you are only a casual member and want to come you will need to pay for junior membership fee ($30/$20 if you live in the SWOT region) in addition to camp fees. This will of course mean that entry fees for events will then be at the member rather than casual rate.
  • Note: Other activities will be available in addition to orienteering.  However, these will not include any of the water-based activities.
