There is a US junior team for using a map and running through the forest looking for orange and white flags?  Yes, there is.  And the selected competitors get to travel around the world meeting other youths and running through foreign forests. Sound like fun?  It really is the ultimate treasure hunt.

A junior orienteer consists of any US youth, age 20 or younger, that can compete, on their own, on a yellow course. Yellow courses are just above the beginner level.  You could do that after just a couple of treks through the forest.  Really.

Go to the US orienteering web site to find a club in your area.  Go to events.  Meet people. Learn.  Before you know it, you are hooked on the sport.  Like these two Hubmann brothers:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnE-hftGQoU
