Wolf Finding Your Way

Finding Your Way, a Wolf Elective Adventure

These requirements are effective June 4, 2024

The Wolf Cub Scout handbook says,”The ancient Greeks went on many adventures. Their writings told of faraway lands and treasures. To explain where their adventures took them, they created geography. Geography is the science of the Earth’s surface. Geo means “earth” and grapho means “to write.” Maps and compasses are tools that have helped travelers know if they are headed in the right direction.
