School Teachers

Let us bring Navigation Games to you! Our experienced staff can help you develop orienteering programs for in-school activities, field trips, after-school programs, and more!


Children love the thrill of finding checkpoints! We have activities and clinics open to all beginners, kids and adults alike.


We're always looking for help with Navigation Games activities. Teaching clinics, setting courses, putting out controls, or anything you can do to help us out is greatly appreciated!

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.
