Our Club

Azimut Laurentides Orienteering Club is a non-profit organization run by a group of motivated volunteers who want to make orienteering accessible to all nature and fitness enthusiasts.

We create permanent introductory orienteering (OC) courses for schools, towns and summer camps.
Since 2018, we’ve been organizing summer camps to introduce families to OC. In addition, in 2022 and 2023 we organized camps specifically for Ukrainian newcomers to help them integrate by getting to know Quebec’s nature, language and culture.
Beginners and families have nothing to fear; people of all ages and levels can easily learn their way around!

Our Mission

  • Introduce as many people as possible to orienteering.
  • Teach young (and not-so-young) people to navigate, read maps and use a compass.
  • Increase participation in regional, national and world orienteering events.
  • Promote respect for wildlife and the environment.

Isabel Sigouin
Whenever the opportunity arises, Isabel organizes an activity involving orienteering… for her family, friends and anyone else who crosses her path! Why? Because orienteering gets the head and legs working, and awakens the childlike heart in all participants. She is also involved with the VĂ©lo Pays-d’en-Haut, Fondeurs Laurentides, Ski Viking and Orientation Ramblers clubs. She is a geological engineer who has worked in construction for most of her career. She is involved in the creation of a network of permanent orienteering courses to make the sport more accessible throughout the province.
