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 2017 Ten Commandments Hike will be held on Saturday April 22, 2017 at the Lewisville ISD Natatorium (1800 Timber Creek) with registration starting at 930am – 10am and a cost of $ 5 per attendee.

Footsteps of the Saints Pilgrimage

The series of Footsteps Pilgrimage trips began in 2007 as an opportunity that welcomed Boy Scouts to explore religious sites in Northern New Mexico, work on Boy Scout Religious Awards, introduce the lives of Saints as role models for today’s youth as well as a “Jamboree” style experience where we combine Scouts from as many as 5 Diocese and 20 Troops … PLUS Scouts of Japan!
 
The high points of this trip include:

Visit the “miraculous staircase”, the Church at Chimayo, and participate in a Philmont Mass with Scouting clergy from around the nation

Experience traveling with Catholic Scouts of Japan, speak Japanese (yes, we teach you how to speak some Japanese) and gain friends who only live 5,000 miles away (but are only an email away)

Visit indian cliff dwellings at Bandolier National Monument, experience the way legendary Pioneer Kit Carson lived and tour the beautiful Villa Philmonte


Earn the St Paul Miki International Activity patch, the Messenger of Peace and several other International Scouting Awards that very few have ever earned … except those that join our program. Next Trip 2018

Visit With officials of the National Catholic Committee while at Philmont Scout Ranch
