2020 SCOUT-O

Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Camp Crooked Creek

Orienteering Workshops and Navigation Courses

Scroll to the bottom of the page for info on the Open to the Public courses

ACTIVITIES:

ORIENTEERING INSTRUCTION STATIONS -  In the morning to learn or brush up on the skills needed to navigate cross country with a map and compass.

ORIENTEERING COURSES – Scouts will pair up and complete a one-mile orienteering course (good for the First Class rank requirement and Orienteering merit badge).  They can do up to three courses (time permitting) to complete the 3 courses needed for Orienteering merit badge.

THE MAZE-O! – Scouts who have returned from the course can challenge themselves individually on the orienteering maze!

WORK ON REQUIREMENTS FOR:

Second Class Rank

Requirement 3a

First Class Rank

Requirement 4a

Orienteering Merit Badge

Requirements 2-7

Please note – the Orienteering merit badge cannot be completed in one day – Scouts will have the opportunity to complete most of the requirements. The most practical way to complete the rest of the requirements is to participate in future OLOU events. Of course, scouts and troops can also complete the requirements on their own.

COST:

The cost is $10.00 per Scout and includes color printed maps, handouts and patch.

Adults who are participating in the training workshops and going on a course(s), or who want a map need to register for $10.00 as well.  Adults are highly encouraged to participate.
