Junior Training Camps

Pre-Easter 2019 Carnival Training Camp
Dryandra National Park, 15th – 17th April 2019

This year Orienteering WA is running a special Junior Orienteering Camp, thanks to the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSCI), which has provided us with a grant to bring two of Australia’s top junior coaches to WA for the Easter School Holidays. The timing of the Camp just before the Easter Carnival gives our juniors the opportunity to be well prepared for the competitions.
