Activities for Juniors 2020
WA Orienteering School Team
Sadly COVID-19 has meant that there was National Schools Championship event in 2020 but this means plenty of time to train ready for the event to be run in Tasmania in 2021.
Junior Training Camp
The yearly training camp takes place in the July school holidays for our junior members, and is run by our accredited coaches. The 2020 camp was held 4th-6th July at Swan Valley Adventure Centre.
15 juniors and a team of coaches spent the weekend learning new orienteering skills and having a great time bonding. As orienteering involves skills other than just running, there were plenty of fun challenges for them to do. Check out the photos on Facebook.
We provide for a wide range of orienteering abilities. The camp is suitable for young people who enjoy orienteering, want to learn more about it and have a fun time with other young people. The camp is open to orienteers aged from 10 to 17 years who have participated in at least one bush event or NavDash event in addition to any school events. To attend the camp you need to be a member of Orienteering WA.
You'll find a review of the 2019 camp in the July Edition of O Xpress (page 12) and plenty of photos on our Facebook page. A full review of the 2020 camp will be in the next edition of O Xpress.
