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.
