Welcome to World Orienteering Week:  May 15th - 21st 2019

For Primary School Teachers and Youth Leaders

World Orienteering Week takes place during 15 - 21st May 2019.

The aim is to have 500,000 people take part in orienteering during that week across the world. Orienteering is a sport that keeps you fit, challenges the mind, and is lots of fun!

Join in by organising a simple orienteering activity for your school or youth group.
