Rotary Sunshine Camp - Regular Event
Sunday April 30th, Noon - 2pm
Parking will be in the main lot and the gravel lot then a 500 m walk to the start building. Look for signs and streamers.
Red - 6 km
Green - 5.1 km
Brown - 3.8 km
Orange - 4.4 km
Yellow - 2.4 km
White - 1.5 km
All regular courses are offered. The woods are very open this time of year. Rotary has very little climb with 2.5 m contours. The map is comprised of Rotary Sunshine Camp and DEC lands which surround it. You will notice camp boundary signs which are marked on the map. There are rock features such as boulders and rock piles.
It is wet out there! If water is mapped it will be there but there will be more water which is NOT mapped. Dark green is still impassable but most else is passable, especially green slash. Vegetation boundaries have not been updated so keep that in mind (especially in the northern middle section of the map).
Hope to see you there!

Orienteering Clinic Saturday 4/22
Learn the basics of orienteering! For those who have been hoping for some formal instruction before heading out on the trail, ROC will present classroom instruction on how to read orienteering maps. Then everyone will go out into Cobb's Hill Park to do a short orienteering course. We will regroup to talk about what was learned out on the course.
Experienced ROC members will be there to guide you and share their expertise. You will come away from this workshop ready to participate in ROC's many events held throughout the season.
There is no charge! The clinic will include the following topics:
● Classroom instruction on terminology and techniques
● Learn to read an orienteering map
● Practice navigating an orienteering course in Cobb’s Hill Park
● Find out about Rochester area permanent orienteering courses and local meets
Come dressed for the weather with appropriate footwear for variable trail conditions. We will be working both in the classroom and outdoors.
You are strongly encouraged to register on-line if you expect to attend
