Spring Scout Orienteering Day at Hale Reservation

All Scouts are invited to a day of Orienteering. It will be a day of outdoor adventure as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Venture Scouts, and Webelos Cub Scouts learn and practice map and compass skills as well as work on orienteering related badge requirements.

When: Saturday, April 22, 2017
Where:Hale Reservation, Westwood Mass.

Saturday's program will emphasize skill development, training, and practice. Scouts (and adults) will be able to learn orienteering skills such that they will be able to orienteer through the woods on their own. Ample orienteering courses will be available for scouts to practice their orienteering skills.

Boy Scouts can complete First Class requirement #2 (orienteering) as well as many requirements for the Orienteering" Merit Badge. Note: for requirement 8, Meet Planning, contact Bruce Wester by April 2, 2017

For first time orienteers, an experienced instructor will be assigned to work with you and your group and help Scouts learn skills and pass requirements.
