Map: Academy Hill
This fall in Kelowna we are organizing a series of lowkey orienteering trainings on some existing maps and a couple of new areas. They are beginner friendly, but also have longer options. Expect two courses at each training - a shorter, easier course that is suitable for beginners and families, as well as a longer more technical course for everyone else.
