Sport orienteering is a rapidly developing sport combining a competitive cross-country track-running, cycling, skiing-with thinking activities aimed at finding specific points on the terrain with a map, a compass and various specialized orienteering techniques.

In any weather, orienteers in the forest are fleeing in winter and summer! Going on vacation, speaking at competitions in Russia and in foreign countries., The children learn about the world and geography on their own experience, grow up healthy, strong, beautiful people. In the constant search for the most difficult and interesting sports routes on the personal accounts of the pupils, hundreds of kilometers of running and skiing, along forests and mountains, along rocks and swamps with a compass and a map, appear unnoticed. And our paths lie from Moscow to the Khibiny Mountains, the Ural and the Carpathians, from the Moscow Kremlin to the Kremlin in Veliky Novgorod, from the Tsar’s chambers of Petrodvorets to fairy castles in Krakow, from the geological museums of Kirov and Gornozavodsk to the amber museum in Klaipeda …
