I'm putting together the final activities for our July pack event (an outdoor skills day where the kids will learn how to use a compass, tie a bowline knot, read a basic map, ...).

The thing I'm stuck on is activities that can be used to let the kids have fun while practicing using a compass.

I was thinking of creating a course for them to follow with hints such as "20 yards south-east of the large oak tree" and "15 feet at 220 degrees from the wood pile".

Can anyone suggest any other games that would be easy for the cubs to understand?

There just has to be Compass Tag!
