Navigating a course with a local sketch map and creating a course for another section


Local Maps
Pens & Paper


Before the meeting design a course in the local area of 4 legs to navigate.
Set the Scouts off on the course at the beginning of the meeting in small groups. Timed to ensure speed of completion!
When returned get the Scouts to draw their own sketch map of the local area. One in a rural setting and one in a town setting to create a short course that can be followed by either one of the other sections or to swap with the rest of their group.
