Point North   Point North Activity   Scout Activity

This is a good method to keep scouts attuned to where they are and where they are going.

At any point on a hike or while outside, such as finishing a rest stop or eating lunch or when crossing a large open field, have the scouts stop and stand.
Tell everyone that on the count of 3, they should turn and point due north. Then, count 1, 2, 3.
Using a compass, indicate which direction is actually north so each scout can judge himself on how well he did.

You might want to ask those that were very close how they determined which way was north so the others can learn.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
