Volunteers Needed
No Experience Necessary

It takes a lot of volunteers to put on each orienteering meet, but it doesn't take a lot of time to be a volunteer. Volunteers are needed to help with registration, results, control pickup, etc. The typical time commitment is 1 to 1.5 hours. We'll show you everything you need to know to help out. Plus, you'll still have time to participate in the orienteering. All volunteers will be eligible for the end-of-year banquet, too!

Please check the 'volunteer' box on your registration form, and the meet director will be in contact with you.



Waterfall Glen
Forest Give Back Day
May 3, 10AM-1PM

Have you been dreaming of thorn-free orienteering? Join CAOC in bushwacking thorns! On May 3rd, we will be working with DuPage Forest Preserve stewards to give back to the forest by removing invasive species. Training, tools, and snacks will be provided. Sign up as part of your registration or at the start/finish table at the next event so that we can provide you with more details.

Two bonuses: The more people we get, the more thorns we eliminate! All volunteers will be invited to the CAOC Volunteer Appreciation Banquet at the end of the year.

About Orienteering

Everyone is welcome. No experience, no special clothes, and no competitive instinct are required. You do not have to run when orienteering—many experienced orienteers walk the course. But competitive running is also welcome. First-time orienteers are especially welcome—we will help you get started.

If you have questions about orienteering or need help finding the event location, e-mail the club secretary at secretary@chicago-orienteering.org.
