Camp Jack Wright is owned and operated by the Greater Alabama Council. It is located in the Roupes Valley, adjacent to Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park. There is a permanent orienteering course located within the camp.

The orienteering course was completed on January 24, 2004 and expanded the summer of 2009. The course should be started from the activity pavilion or the flagpole at Camp Jack Wright. The markers are made from 4”x 4” treated posts that are about 2 feet tall. Each marker has a number engraved on it. There are twenty markers.

The downloadable course map and course description are required to run the course.
