What is it?
The monthly hikes are planned by the Family Hiking Committee to get the Scouts out to different area parks. Sometimes there are missions or tasks for the Scouts to complete for prizes and awards.
If you’d like to be involved in planning a future hike for the Pack, email Stephanie Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
