Blue Hills Training Camp
Milton, MA

Courses Close: 
2:00 PM

The NEOC Training Camp at the Blue Hills is a training camp targeting beginner and intermediate level orienteers. Unlike the set of courses at a typical orienteering event, the training camp will have a set of short exercises designed to introduce participants to fundamental techniques. Instruction by experienced orienteers will accompany the exercises, and participants will have opportunities to discuss their progress with coaches.

Rather than trying to bring everyone to the next level in a single afternoon, the objective of the camp is to explain how to think about orienteering, to teach what techniques to practice, and to reveal strengths and weaknesses in your current approach.

Please contact Ian Smith if you are interested in helping out as a coach.

The event will be located at Houghton's Pond in the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, MA. Registration will be located at a picnic site just southeast of the parking area on Hillside St. Follow the O-signs upon arrival.
