Foothills Wanderers Orienteering Club has been keeping kids and adults active, engaged and finding their way in Calgary for over 40 years.

It combines everything we need for optimum physical and mental health: physical activity that’s rooted in nature with like-minded friends!

Foothill Orienteering SOGO Summer Camps (Family Fun Calgary)

SOGO Adventure Running offers half-day and full-day summer camps for kids ages 5 – 12 in various Calgary parks. These camps are filled with trail running and outdoor games, offering loads of physical movement, adventure, and fun. Kids will learn map reading through orienteering activities and navigation sessions, too. SOGO is all about developing outdoorsy, adventurous and confident kids.

What You Need to Know for Summer Camps

SOGO summer camps run weekly through July and August at various locations in Calgary, plus, there is a half-day camp in Canmore. Depending on your chosen week, camps are held at Canmore Nordic Centre, Fish Creek Park, Confederation Park, Nose Hill Park, and Pearce Estate Park. Camps run from 9 am – 12 pm for half days and from 9 am – 4:30 pm for full days. Parents can drop off half an hour early or pick up half an hour after the camp is over. Of course, kids must dress for outdoor activity, including layers and shoes with good, active tread. Pack a water bottle and snacks. Maybe even throw in some extra snacks, because they’ll be hungry after all that activity in the fresh air!
