Orienteering in Wisconsin
The Badger Orienteering Club is the main organization in Wisconsin for orienteering — a racing sport where competitors navigate through a landscape using a map and compass. The club hosts races, training sessions, and social events for orienteers of all skill levels, from beginners trying out the sport for the first time to veteran orienteers. Because it combines mental and physical skills, orienteering is a great way to experience the outdoors in a new way.
