Ten Commandments Hike
 
 The Ten Commandments hike began in 2000 as an interfaith program that welcomed Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Youth Groups who were members of any religious denomination. The hike visits different religious denomination worship places where the pastor describes 1 of the 10 Commandments. The hike is typically about 3 miles long and takes about 3 hours to complete. Attendees bring a sack lunch that is eaten along the hike in a park setting. A special commemorative patch is given to all participants.
 
The 2018 Ten Commandments Hike will be held on Saturday April 21, 2018 at the Lewisville ISD Natatorium (1800 Timber Creek) with registration starting at 8:30am – 9 am and a cost of $ 5 per attendee.
