This merit badge is very involved. Do not expect to complete it in one day, or even one weekend.
Scouts should complete First Class requirement #2 (orienteering) before starting this merit badge.
This merit badge has 10 requirements. Requirements are posted on the BSA website: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/Merit_Badge_ReqandRes/Orienteering.pdf

With just a little planning, it’s possible to earn most of this Interest Patch Project badge at an NEOC Scout-O event (either a one-day event or a weekend). These instructions explain how to do that.
To earn the IPP, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors must complete 2 activities from the Skill Builders section, 1 activity from the Technology section, 1 activity from the Careers section, 1 activity from the Service Projects section, and 2 more activities, which may be drawn from any section(s).
At the NEOC Scout-O, girls will complete Skill Builders 1, 2, 3, and 5. If they are willing to work with the Scout-O organizers ahead of time, they can also complete Service Project activities 2 and/or 4. (Activity #2 is organizing the meet and activity #4 is providing instruction.)

With just a little planning, it’s possible to earn the entire Finding Your Way badge at an NEOC Scout-O event (either a one-day event or a weekend). These instructions explain how to do that.
Girl Scout Juniors will also complete requirement 5 of the Hiker badge.
Girls must complete 6 requirements to earn the Finding Your Way. Requirements 1, 2, 3, and 4 can easily be completed at the Scout-O weekend. With a little extra time, requirement 8 could also be completed.
