We are a dynamic and friendly orienteering club, noted for welcoming newcomers, for our families with children of various ages, and for our top-level national competitors. Our objective is to foster and promote orienteering as a recreational and competitive sport.

We offer a full schedule of orienteering in New Hampshire. Our event schedule is dominated by local meets (designed for beginners, casual orienteers, and competitive types). Please check for additional events in the orienteering web sites from our neighboring states:
