Navigation Games

map games for all

We teach kids to orienteer!

Our mission is to teach Cambridge-area children how to read maps, navigate, work as a team, make decisions, and act independently, all through the sport of orienteering. Orienteering is a sport where participants find checkpoints marked on a map.

What is orienteering?








Orienteering is a sport where participants find checkpoints marked on a map. It's basically a more awesome version of a scavenger hunt that's fun for all ages, and can be done casually or competitively. There are many different ways to orienteer, and many different activities that involve orienteering skills. Read more about our various navigation games..
