Attila is one of the young residents of Acadia Park who tried out orienteering at our UBC URBAN LONG event. Here he proudly reaches the finish after having completed both the Beginner and Intermediate courses with his mother Ildi. Great job Attila and thanks for coming!
Lots of families and fun at the WJR yesterday at Acadia-UBC! Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with the newcomers.

Welcome Newcomers!

GVOC is an active orienteering club in the Metro Vancouver area. We hold local events every Wednesday evening, and larger weekend events monthly.

Orienteering is an exciting sport for all ages and fitness levels that involves reading a detailed map and using a compass to find checkpoints. Click here for more information about the sport.

To get started, come to any event a few minutes early and we will give you a brief introduction. Then you can run or walk around all or part of a course, on your own or with someone else, so long as you're back no later than the "course close" time (so we know you're back safe). It's easy to learn and a lot of fun. All you need is some older clothing and footwear, in case the ground is a bit muddy.

Please sign up on our website in advance - that way we know to print a map for you (but we always print a few spare maps too!). 

Membership is payable at the first event you attend each year and is good for the entire calendar year. Fees are: $10 for new members who have never orienteered before; $15 for Adults; $5 for Juniors under 20; $30 for family.

Wednesday evening events are free for members. A beginner's course is always offered and a more advanced course. If you come during the winter months, you'll need a headlamp or a flashlight.

Weekend events are held once a month (usually on Sundays mornings) in larger parks around Metro Vancouver and have different course levels. There is an event fee of $10 per adult and $5 for juniors. We use "electronic timing" so you can see how well you did.
