Organizer: Wade Tokarek (Event Director)

Map: Valleyview


The first orienteering event of the year!

If you are new to the sport, come on out! We will have someone on hand to teach newcomers about orienteering.


There will be several courses offered, ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced. More details to come.


  • 11:00am - Courses Open, First Starts, and Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners.
  • 2:00pm Courses close

Meeting Place:

Meet in the parking lot for Valleyview Arena. Turn left off Highland Road on the way up to Juniper Heights. See the map below.


The Valleyview map is open grassland, but very hilly. The courses are bounded on 3 sides by housing and roads and there is a major fence on the 4th side … no chance of getting lost, but those controls may be hard to find!

Kamloops Weeknight Series and Introduction to Orienteering:

Kamloops has a new weeknight program running on Wednesday evenings for all club members and newcomers starting in May. Learn to orienteer from scratch, or practice up your skills.
