What is TJOC?

TJOC 2020 is a 6-day residence orienteering camp designed to train and field competitive junior orienteers who can compete and win at local and national meets! Texas provides unique terrain and a training experience that will significantly improve orienteering skills. One of the longest-running and premier orienteering camps in the U.S., TJOC is a joint effort between North Texas Orienteering Association (NTOA) and Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Longhorn Council. We’ve enhanced the skills of some of the best junior orienteers across the country for nearly 20 years.
