We are working on our fall schedule, and the best way to add more events is to add you! If you are interesting in helping in any way, please let us know (smoc.mi {at} gmail.com). We'd be happy to teach the finer parts of course setting (we guarantee an increase in flag-finding ability after course designing and scouting). There are opportunities to design your own or work with an experienced course designer. Time commitments are as flexible as you need - if you'd just like to tag along or find out more about it, that's welcome too!

Welcome to SMOC

The Southern Michigan Orienteering Club hosts events in southern Michigan.

Using a map and compass, find your way to checkpoints marked with orange and white flags. Courses range from beginner-friendly on or near trails to expert navigation courses with points far off trail in the wilds of Michigan woods.

You choose your route - climb the hill or go around. Jump the stream or use a log. Run for the win or go for an afternoon hike - it's up to you!

Many of our events have beginner clinics - check the events page.
