About the Club
The Rochester Orienteering Club holds meets at local parks approximately every
other week during the spring, summer and fall.
At Local Meets you are provided with a park map marked with your course produced specially by the club for orienteering. A family, hiking a course as a group, may only need a single map. It isn't necessary to use a compass on beginner courses, but compasses may be borrowed from the club, if you want to practice. Instruction and beginner courses are available at all meets and most meets include "String-O".
The club also maintains permanent courses which you and your family can explore
at your leisure in Webster, Durand Eastman, Mendon Ponds, and Letchworth. Permanent course
kits, as well as maps of other parks, are available at some local retailers like
The Map Shop in Pittsford or directly from the club.
