Haere mai! You’re invited to the Canterbury Schools Orienteering Festival 2022.

If you are school aged and go to a primary, intermediate, high school or are homeschooled in Canterbury, you can enter this regional schools orienteering festival. Plenty of training opportunities to learn and practice your orienteering skills are available in the weeks before the festival.
This two-day competition has something for everyone. You can choose to orienteer on your own in a Competitive grade if you have orienteering experience; or compete with friends in the Fun competition. We welcome all students, from beginner orienteers to experienced orienteers and those who have never orienteered before.
