Registration and Starts:

12:45 - 3:00 for Youth Series activities and Courses (White, Yellow, Orange)
In addition to having regular NEOC orienteering courses, NEOC will host the 5th event in the 2017 Greater Boston Youth Orienteering Series. The youth activities will include 'training' stations and courses for youth (ages 3-5, 6-9, 10-12, 13+). The youth activity stations will be led by coaches and start with games aimed at teaching map reading skills and navigation through unfamiliar terrain. After the games, participants will have the option to try an orienteering course with family or friends. More experienced youth can complete the courses individually. To participate in both coaching activities and a course, please arrive between 12:45 - 1:00 pm. Starts for youth series courses are staggered between 1 - 3pm. This youth outreach initiative is a joint project of NEOC, CSU, and Navigation Games.
Coaches available to assist beginning adult orienteers 11 am – 2 pm.
Note - Parking and registration for the event this year is at the ice cream parking lot, not the ski barn parking lot. There is a $3 parking fee.
Please note: This site charges $3 per car (or MA state parks parking pass) for parking.
