With perfect weather, 13 adult Girl Scout and Scout BSA leaders spent 2 hours in Upton State Forest learning about the sport of orienteering and tips for teaching young people about orienteering symbols, contour lines, route choice, and how to get "Red Fred in his shed" when using a compass. The group was lots of fun, and it sounds like several participants will participate in NEOC events in addition to the Spring Scout-O (at Hale Reservation April 17, 2021) and Fall Scout-O (at Nobscot Scout Reservation Oct 30-31, 2021, pending permit approval).
