Hiking Merit Badge
Enjoy hiking? The hiking merit badge is an optional Eagle required badge (swimming, cycling, or hiking). Part of the requirements are five continuous 10 mile hikes. Starting in April, this optional activity will begin with a hike in the foothills. These hikes will be designed to build endurance, complete the requirements, only take part of the day, and enjoy the outdoors. If you are interested, please send me a message. Families are welcome to join us but please be ready for some exercise and the outdoors.
