I wear a GPS on my belt but never go hunting without 2 compasses. One is around my neck and the other is in my pack as a safety net. GPS are amassing but could be broken in a fall or become inoperative for a variety of reasons.

Not PC but show them how to fish with just a bug and a 3' stick. But if you're in the middle of nowhere, at least you can eat.

Thanks for the ideas. We are trying to be more organized this year so the pre-planning should help a lot.

I think the compass and map idea is pretty good. Maybe group, and individual training. If the kids seem to have a handle on then a hike with them plotting the course followed by a cook out.

If the orienteering turns out to beyond them. Switched to a show and tell nature walk.

Some grown soldiers could not grasp orienteering. One guy from the South Bronx took to it like a duck to water (maybe from growing up ready subway maps?) so you never know who'll do well at it.

That experience alone should have had him teaching the course, LOL!
