BSA Scout Rank Requirements:
There is not an organized program for Rank Advancement requirements, however if you take a look at the requirements, you have the opportunity to complete:
- S3a. Demonstrate how a compass works and how to orient a map. Use
a map to point out and tell the meaning of five map symbols.
- F4a. Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that
covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/
or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.).
There is not an organized program for Webelos Walkabout, however if you take a look at the requirements, you will see you could do quite a bit while you are here.
