The Bay Area Orienteering Club is pleased to announce the 22nd Annual Bay Area Scout Orienteering Championship, a cross country map and compass adventure designed to test the map reading ability, compass skills and woodsman savvy of any scout regardless of experience.

Cub Scouts of all ages are welcome.  No prior experience needed. Instruction will be offered prior to the event so that all Scouts, regardless of prior experience, will be able to take part in the actual competition.  There will be courses of four distinct levels of difficulty, so that no Scout should encounter a challenge beyond his capabilities.

There will not be extra compasses to borrow at the event. Please get a basic orienteering compass and avoid these: iPhone, wristwatch, engineering, surveying, Happy Meal, tritium.

Directions: Take route 24 West from 680 or East from 80. Exit at Orinda heading North on Camino Pablo. After about 2 miles, turn right on Bear Creek Road. After about 3.5 miles, the park entrance will be on your right (don’t be fooled by the parking area on the left – that’s not it), and is well sign-posted. Parking fee of $5. Please carpool if possible.
