GVOC is hosting the 2014 Junior Festival at Robert Burnaby Park. We are inviting young people, their families, friends and regular GVOC members to a fun day of orienteering. This is a great opportunity to introduce family, friends and anybody who has wanted to try to orienteering.

Robert Burnaby Park is a fantastic forested hillside filled with ravines, open fields and a complicated trail network. It provides interesting and challenging orienteering for all abilities.
