APRIL 23-24, 2016

Because getting lost is no laughing matter.


Q: Which is smarter, Longitude or Latitude? A: Longitude, because is has 360 degrees.


On this campout we take maps and compass to a whole new level. We will focus on orienteering, map & compass, and nature.  Scouts will hike in to the campsite with their personal gear in backpacks, approximately 1 mile.  There will be an orienteering course competition between the patrols.  In preparation, Scouts should pages 346-351 and 372-374 in the Scout Handbook about “Navigation”.


Participation is mandatory for all scouts.
