All Troops & Venturing crews are challenged to test (and hone!) their map skills at the 45th Annual Maryland Scout Orienteering Day on Oct. 23 at Patuxent River Park near Upper Marlboro. NCAC troops from Virginia and Maryland always do well, winning 15 of the top 22 awards the last time here; in 2019 over 500 youth, 160 adults orienteered. Troop 540 from Howard County won the troop award in 2020.
Units register online here. Our self-guided map activities in the morning are designed for beginners. About half of the attendees camp one or two nights. No Cubs, no Webelos.
