Best source? Do you have any boys who are working on, or have earned,
the Orienteering MB? Encourage them to do it (setting up a course is a
requirement for the MB). I've seen in our Scout Shop a pre-made package
for an orienteering game, intended to teach skills & build interest.
However, from what I've seen a custom designed course that fits the
particulars of your terrain & "landmarks" will be apt to work better
than any premade course. If you don't have any boys working on the MB,
check your counselor list -- a nearby counselor may have pretty much
just what you need.
