Parents, you’ve told us you want more outdoor experiences for your son and we’ve listened!
So have your child get into nature and have him join our popular Hiking Club. Founded in 2012, it is one of only a handful of Cub Scout hiking clubs in the United States.
On a regular basis, the Pack gets your boy into the outdoors to experience and connect with the serenity, beauty and wonders of the environment, see wildlife, learn about plants, geology, weather, area history and so much more.
We hike in all seasons, times of day and weather and explore a different location each time, including wildlife refuges, city parks, town and state forests, conservation land, etc.
Plus, hiking-club related recognition is given at certain milestones as your boy’s miles accumulate.
Best of all, there are numerous opportunities to meet Cub Scouting outdoor-related awards, belt loops, rank and badge requirements and lessons.
And, your whole family is welcome too.
Consider the Benefits
No TV, no video games, just you, your family and the positive peer group of Pack 24 hiking in the wilderness, enjoying the fresh air, the peace and quiet, the amazing scenery, the wildlife, birds, and more.
On every hike we see children’s senses become heightened and their imaginations inspired.
Your child may not realize it, but they are developing an appreciation and love for the outdoors and being in nature while having lots of fun.
