Tui Ridge Training Camp

Just before Christmas one of the club juniors, Lucy Harsant, went to a 4 day training camp at Rotorua for Intermediate School age orienteers. This is what she has written about the camp.

On the first day, we did 3 courses around the Tui Ridge camp, the first one was really easy and was like a warm-up, it helped me find my way around the camp a little bit better (I don’t think it was supposed to help with that but it did). Next, we followed a line course and there were 3 different options and each one was either easy, medium or hard. We could choose to go by ourselves or in pairs, I didn’t want to get lost and so I went with one of the other girls that I had met. My friend and I tried our hardest to follow the course, I think we did pretty well but then our time limit was almost up so we decided to cut it short and go find our way through the forest. Thankfully we found our way back to the camp with a few minutes to spare. Our third and final course for the day was a simple individual run around the forest, it was supposed to be a yellow course but it felt like a white so I finished it in about 15 minutes. Read more
