Young orienteers age 13-19 are invited to join us from June 4-9, 2023, for our annual camp dedicated to achieving navigational greatness! Find out more and fill out an application for yourself, your child or your students.

Spring-O Registration is open!

It’s time to head back to Sid Richardson Scout Ranch (and hopefully some great weather and wildflowers) for our Spring-O event in coordination with the Longhorn BSA Council! Registration for orienteering (via NTOA) and optional lodging (via BSA) are both now open: http://ntoa.com/spring-o-with-longhorn-council-bsa-2023/

Registration open: LBJ Dillo-Goat!

Different format, maybe even more fun: Mass start, following is allowed, skip a control, first one across the line wins for each course. It’s barebones, so no awards, just navigational fun. All this for $5 ($3 e-punch rental required if you don’t have your own.) This terrain is tough, though… http://ntoa.com/lbj-grasslands-dillogoat-2023/

Registration open: Texas Championships, Dec. 10

December is right around the corner, and with it our meet at Camp Trevor Rees-Jones/Clements Scout Ranch near Athens. Usually called the Texas Stampede, this season we’re elevating it to the Texas championships! Registration is open now — note: Please download the PDF with special Championship classes and sign up for one of these, even if it’s not the course …

Registration open: Arbor Hills DIY-O!

Enjoy Thanksgiving week with family and friends even more by taking them orienteering at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano! Register online and then download maps for one (or more) of three courses by Stan Darnell.
