How about Wikipedia?

Yep, which starts with a simple google search too.  :)    Found all in a couple minutes.

Hi all,

This is my kid's question. We're kind of new to this, and I can't find any answers either. We've tried Wikipedia and Google and have now emailed Geocache directly. I don't how y'all found the answers, but any other help would be appreciated.

Thank you so much.

It's off-topic in this forum, although the two games/sports are distant cousins.

In my experience, few cachers are orienteers, or vice versa.

Thank you, Viajero. My daughter has to figure out the definitions for these terms in order to earn a badge for her troop. Thank you for your help.

This is an opportunity for her to learn a bit about self-reliance, and perhaps internet search skills.

Both highly valuable.  Encourage her!

The OP may want to reach out to the US Orienteering organization:  https://orienteeringusa.org

Without spoon-feeding the info, I will say that there is a directory of Clubs on that website, but I'll leave it to the OP or his/her daughter to figure out how to get there from the main website.  There are multiple O clubs in each of the states the OP has found caches in, so hopefully reaching out to those clubs will provide more help than in this geocaching forum.

4 of the types you asked for are found here, just scroll down enough. For the rest and or more detailed information follow the link that noncentric posted.

I suggest the OP visit some of the orienteering sites suggested. As this is not a geocaching topic, closing this.
