On June 5, join other Bucks County Residents in an exciting day of Orienteering. Orienteering is one of the newly added events to the 37th Annual Bucks County Senior Games which will take place the week of June 3rd.  The games, open to adults 50+ encourage county-wide friendly competition and camaraderie. 

What is Orienteering?  Orienteering is a sport that requires participants to use a map and a compass to navigate to find control points.  The goal of orienteering is to complete a course in point-to-point order.  Starts are staggered and the person successfully completing the course in the least amount of time is the winner.  We are thrilled to have the Delaware Valley Orienteering Association helping to run this event. They are the oldest civilian orienteering club in the US and the largest club affiliated with the United States Orienteering Foundation with over 700 members. Orienteering is being held at Core Creek Park Wednesday, June 5 from 10-2PM.  Be sure to register early to participate in this exciting event!

Besides Orienteering, the Senior Games feature: Zumba, Pickleball, golf, billiards, bocce, bowling, bridge, darts, golf, ping pong, pinochle, quoits, and track and field. The games will conclude with a celebratory luncheon on June 13 at Bucks County Community College.

The Bucks County Senior Games are presented by the Bucks County Area on Aging in collaboration with the YMCA of Bucks County and the Bucks County Community College.  Registration begins April 1, 2019!  Visit and for updates.  Or call 267-880-5700 for more information.
