Welcome to the Victoria Orienteering Club

Orienteering is an outdoor adventure activity involving navigation by map and a compass. It is enjoyed as a recreational activity or a challenging competitive sport.

The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the events. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can give it a try. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun. Fees are: $8 adult or $5 youth per map.  All participants must become club members for $5 per year.  Memberships are free for any first-time participants.

For more information about orienteering, see our Orienteering Links  page.
