Everyone Knows How to Read a Compass, Right?

During our January 15th meeting our boys learned many of the key basics for land navigation. Some important lessons learned were:

  1. How to read a map legend

  2. The two different types of north (grid north and magnetic north)

  3. How to determine declination

  4. How to properly orient a map

  5. How to shoot a bearing (azimuth)

Troop 218 continues to focus on teaching our boys life-long skills!
