HIKING

Cub Scouts commit to being physically strong and mentally awake.  Our hiking program promotes these values.  We support our community while in nature by leaving no trace and doing our best to leave the environment better than we found it.  Our hikes are a great way to get to know our pack members and parents better, too.

Our Hiking Coordinator plans hikes monthly. Hikes will be posted on the website calendar at least 1 month in advance. Scouts and their families can also choose to complete the hike on their own. 

 

We work on the Highlander Program and the Trail Trekker series. For most hikes, scouts will earn a patch from one of these programs, but some hikes do not have a patch. However, all hikes count toward hiking achievement awards. We also complete urban hikes that align with service to the community, such as the Danville Parade, Scouting for Food, and Spring Clean at Twin Creeks. Scouts who complete 10 hikes earn a 3-in-1 flashlight. Scouts who complete 20 hikes earn a hiking staff. Scouts who complete 30 hikes earn a hydration pack.

 

Starting in 2021, scouts will be tracking their own hikes. Each scout will receive a tracking sheet from their den leader. Instructions on how to complete the form can be found HERE. Scouts can bring their completed forms to the Hiking Coordinator during group hikes or at Pack Meetings to receive their patches and milestone awards.
