Ten Commandments Hike

Friday, November 27, 2020

An annual favorite of Scouts, parents, and siblings alike. The purpose of the Ten Commandment Hike is to provide an opportunity for young scouts to live their faith, while learning how the Ten Commandments play an important part in their lives and serve as a foundation in living their faith.  This event rotates to different parts of our community each year, taking place the Friday following Thanksgiving. Join us as we discover the strength in our local faith community.
