Our History: Orienteering was incorporated into the curriculum of the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Academy at Quantico, Virginia in the summer of 1967. Soon thereafter Marines at Quantico from outside the Academy took up orienteering primarily to form teams to compete against other military services as well as in international military orienteering competitions. In 1970, the Quantico orienteers organized into a club and included interested parties from outside the base. Gradually the club evolved into a community based organization and severed its official ties to the Marine Corps Base, Quantico. It is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The club name remains because of its rich tradition as the leader in the founding of the United States Orienteering Federation.
