About CROC

The Columbia River Orienteering Club (CROC), founded in 1990, is a Portland, Oregon based club dedicated to enjoying and promoting the international sport of orienteering.

We believe the sport of orienteering is for everyone. Our events are open to anyone interested in participating, and we invite those interested in advancing our mission to volunteer in our organization. We strive to offer events and trainings built upon respect and inclusivity.  

For more than two decades, our all-volunteer club has put on hundreds of orienteering events and introduced thousands of people to the sport. CROC has most of its events in local, regional and state parks, and federally owned land managed by the BLM and US Forest Service. We greatly value our long-time partnerships with these agencies.

CROC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.  The CROC governing board meets quarterly. Minutes of board meetings are posted below.
