July 20

Orienteering Quantico Orienteering Club invites all newcomers to join us for an "INTRODUCTION TO ORIENTEERING” as we get ready for our 2019-2020 season. As we have for the past few years, we are hosting two purely beginner-oriented events: this one at Wheaton Regional Park, Wheaton, MD on Saturday, July 20, and a second one at Pohick Bay Regional Park (VA) on Saturday, Sept. 7.

These will be FREE beginner-only orienteering events for all ages - from children to adults. For anyone who has ever wanted to try orienteering, or just wondered what it is, here's the chance to come out and give it a go. Those of you who are already seasoned orienteers, please feel free to invite your co-workers and friends out to experience that activity you're always telling them about.

Pre-registration will open later closer to the event date.
