Troop 850 will again be participating in the Greater Cincinnati Scout Orienteering Camporee at Camp Friedlander. We went on this campout last year, it was very well organized and fun, and the Scouts have chosen to go again this year. At the campout, Scouts will have the opportunity to learn a lot about orienteering, and Scouts who attended last year will be able to build on last year’s experience. Scouts will compete in timed orienteering courses with recognition for the fastest. There will also be a night orienteering activity. This event is open to other Boy Scout troops as well as to Girl Scout troops and Venture crews, and adults attending with the youth are also encouraged to participate in the competitions.
Scouts will be expected to bring a compass, a whistle, a headlamp or flashlight, shoes suitable for hiking/running, and usual weekend campout gear.
If you plan on attending, please return the Permission Slip on or before October 1; if you register after October 1 but before the 10th, you can still register but the cost increases by $10.
For those attending, additional information is available on the primary Dan Beard web site for the activity here, at the bottom of the page are links to the leader’s guide and to some orienteering learning links.
