OWA Camp for Junior Orienteers 2019

We have organised an orienteering camp with accommodation at Kerem Adventure Camp, Bullsbrook, 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 Coach-in-Residence, Michal Hubacek.

  • 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 6 th July 2019 at Camp Kerem. 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 Red Hill event near Jane Brook on Sunday 7th (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 8th July at Camp Kerem. 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 $100 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 a casual member and want to come you will be charged the cost of junior membership ($40) in addition to camp fees, i.e. you will become a junior member of OWA.
  • Note: Although Kerem Adventure Camp has a pool, there will be no water-based activities. We will, however, be making use of their indoor recreation area, frisbee golf, permanent orienteering course and camp fire.
