The Swedish orienteering club OK Hedstömmen has orienteering in a maze. This has become a highly appreciated form of training by the youngsters in the club. It’s an incredibly playful way to learn orienteering or to navigate from A to B. Maze-O improves the knowledge in a fun way to fit the map, make smart route choices and always have eye contact with the map.

Read and be inspired how Australia made WOD 2017 a huge success. - “The goal was not to have huge numbers entering but rather to make as many people as possible know what orienteering is and to talk about it with their friends.” http://worldorienteeringday.com/index.php/taking-events-to-the-people/

Use the ”Evacuation Plan” for orienteering! With the help of photos or just letters at the checkpoints you can carry out activities whenever you want. At “Internationella Engelska Skolan, Kista” (close to Stockholm) a “Treasure Hunt” have been done. It’s a walking orienteering through the school. The students had to find a letter at each checkpoint and in the end they had to put the letters together to a new clue to find the map of part 2. Depending of the level in school you can increase the difficulties step by step. You don’t need to redraw a new map, just make a copy of the “Evacuation Plan” at your school. All hotels, big factories, shopping centres etc have an Evacuation Plan, just use it for orienteering. It’s a perfect opportunity to educate youngsters in a fun way to get them involved in orienteering!
