Here is the good news: our Family Orienteering camp is happening again in 2022!
The dates have been confirmed: it will be August 8 to 14 (Monday to Sunday), at the Chalets Lanaudiere.
We will have for us the entire Prairie camping, plus a big cottage “Quietude”.
Having this cottage will give all of us a shelter in case of bad weather (it even has a Ping-Pong table!), some storage and a sitting space, kitchen and fridge. So, if it rains and you do not feel like cooking on the campfire or ordering pizza, or your tent gets flooded 😉 , come over!
I am still working on the program, but in general, we will have shorter drives and more on-site activities, in order to accommodate and addition of another large group to our bunch of jolly campers. Approximately 35-40 Ukrainian refugees, mostly mothers with children of all ages, will stay at the bigger cottage “Source”. I am counting on you, to make them feel welcome, and relaxed as much as it is possible.
In terms of costs, our camp shall be self-sufficient. For the camping site for the week, plus cost of the maps, it comes to 440$ per family. You can book directly with me.
Alternatively, there are 3 “glamping” lodging options still available on-site for our dates: 2 yurts and one cabin. Please book directly on the “Chalets Lanaudiere” web site.
Please contact me via this web site before booking.
See you off the trails!

Hello Orienteers, seasoned and those who just want to try it!
It’s official: The O-Camp is happening this summer, and the registration is open! Of course, the format will be different, in order to comply with all the COVID precautions. On the bright side, it will be all-ages-inclusive! The friendly and versatile region of Lanaudière will be ours to discover, so we’ll call this series of Orienteering fun runs: “Lanaudière-O-Rendez-vous”. Here is the new constellation on the summer map, the bottom of the dipper around Rawdon, QC:
Dates: August 16-21 (Monday to Saturday) for the group camping.
Orienteering activities will be taking place on August 17-20 (Tuesday to Friday).

Registration: Is open until midnight July 31st. Absolutely no late entries: I have to provide all the sites with complete list of visitors beforehand. During the registration, you will be asked to indicate your Orienteering club. As a member of the provincial and national Orienteering association, we benefit from an obligatory insurance. Therefore all of our participants have to sign a waiver, and be members of an Orienteering club. If you are not, please choose one, and become a member of our brilliant community! Friendly tip: “Azimut” membership is the least expensive (10$ individual, 15$ family).
for as many days or half-days as you intend to participate in.
Big virtual hug.
