About the Wolf Finding Your Way Adventure

Finding Your Way is one of the Wolf Cub Scout elective adventures. For the Finding Your Way adventure, Wolves learn map and compass skills.

Wolves will make a map of their neighborhood, draw a map to their homes, learn about how compasses work, go on a scavenger hunt, and take a hike or walk. Wolf Cub Scouts will enjoy learning how to find their way around. And these skills will help them later in the Scouting program.
