10 Commandment Hike
The 10 Commandment Hike is offered each year on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The purpose of the hike is to expose Scouts, Scouters, and family members to the 10 Commandments and introduce them to faiths other than their own. The hike is approximately 5 miles in length and stops at houses of worship of several denominations. At each stop, the speaker explains what the assigned commandment means and tells something about their denomination. The hike typically starts around 8:00 and and goes until 4:00 pm with a an additional stop for lunch. The location rotates throughout the Phoenix area and in 2007 an additional hike will be available in the Payson area. Click here for 2007 Hike information and registration.
