Virtual Orienteering Challenge

1 day

Summary

In this challenge, Scouts must navigate to a secret destination, by using a set of directions, a compass, and an online map, all virtually!


Description

This orienteering challenge will test Scout orienteering skills and map usage.

What you need
  • A course of waypoints, that lead to a "secret" destination. The course can be anywhere in the world, so you can be creative here.
  • An online map that can be printed out, that could be held up to the map to determine direction.

Play
Scouts will be given the waypoints, from a starting location. They will need to use something like google maps to find the starting location. They'll utilize a direction and distance to find the next waypoint. For a compass, they just need to keep the online map oriented North-up.

First one to discover the "secret" destination wins!
