In addition to having regular NEOC orienteering courses, NEOC will host the 1st event in the 2020 Greater Boston Youth Orienteering Series. The youth series will feature activity stations aimed at teaching map reading skills and navigation through unfamiliar terrain (activities aimed at ages 3-5, 6-9, 10-12, 13+). After the activity stations, participants have the option to try an orienteering course with family or friends. More experienced youth can complete the courses individually. No experience necessary. This youth outreach initiative is a joint project of NEOC, CSU, and Navigation Games.
The main parking lot is off Waverley Oaks Rd. (Rt. 60) in Waltham, MA., just south of Trapelo Road. This lot will fill up. Overflow cars can park in another lot at the end of Wilson Road, or in the shopping center lot just beyond Wilson Road. There is no parking on Waverley Oaks Road!
NEOC events are held rain or shine.
(Ski-O events may be canceled if snow is poor.)
