4/26-28TH: NOBSCOT SCOUT RESERVATION FRAMINGHAM, MA
On the April trip we will concentrate on improving our orienteering skills. We will also hike to the top of Noscot hill from which you can see Boston. Scouts will need to have a proper compass for this trip. The troop has a couple to lend out, but since a compass is one of the 10 essentials that every scout should pack, you should really consider buying a compass. You can get a good one for $10 to $15.
It is important that you by the proper type of compass. It should have these features:
- You can see a good example of the proper compass here http://www.amazon.com/Silva-2801290-Starter-1-2-3-Compass/dp/B001M5TN3W
- Notice that this example has a rectangular clear base plate and the red arrow in the circular part of the compass (it looks kind of like a shed)
- Please do not bring military style or small novelty compasses, they will not be sufficient for the instruction session
Scouts – note that we will hike in about 1/2 mile to our campsite, so you need to think about what sort of cooking gear you will bring.
