The Kent Junior Orienteering Festival (previously Kent Junior Orienteering Championships) is held annually during the summer. Its organisation is shared between the two orienteering clubs serving Kent, DFOK and SAXONS.

General:
This is a junior only event in a small area where juniors can feel confident orienteering on their own knowing that they are never too far from the start/finish. There will be adult helpers patrolling the area in distinctive vests, available to assist juniors should they need it. There will also be lots of prizes to be awarded after the event.  The event is open to all juniors, including those from outside Kent.

Courses:
There are 4 courses. In order to be competitive for the junior championship, the juniors must choose the correct course for their national curriculum (see table). Years 3 and 4 may compete on the White Course.

Shadowing is allowed, but the child will then not be eligible for the championship. This is a great opportunity to allow the child to orienteer independently as the area is so small and contained, and there will be helpers patrolling the competition area. White and Yellow course competitors may view their map before the start.
