ORIENTEERING FOR SCOUTS BSA

Orienteering Louisville has been a partner with the Lincoln Heritage Council for years, helping promote orienteering to its youth members in Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana.  The club puts on an annual orienteering event for the council and helps with training events throughout the year.  Scouts can also participate in regular club events to complete rank and badge requirements.
