18th Annual 10 Commandments Hike

Event Details

The Baden-Powell Duty to God Committee is planning our 14th annual council-wide 10 Commandments Hike. Cub Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, Girl Scouts, Families of Scouts and Church Youth Groups are welcome and invited to attend.

Cost is $7 per person or $25 max per family (includes lunch!)

Participants meet at a designated house of worship, register, and have one commandment explained by the pastor or the pastor's designee. Then Scouts and others "hike" to each of the remaining 9 houses of worship, where another commandment will be discussed and a little about the faith/denomination/parish/worship community will be explained. At the end of the hike, participants will receive a 10 Commandments Hike patch, will be aware of Scout religious awards and will have a basic understanding of the 10 Commandments. The hike will include 10 different churches covering multiple denominations in and around the Ithaca area. The starting point will be at a location in Cortland, NY.

Check-in will begin at 9:00 AM and the event will conclude mid-afternoon. We will provide lunch. Routes to the 10 churches will be established for groups of Scouts and their families, or for youth groups according to the age ranges of the youth participants. The total route is expected to be between 1 and 2 miles. Advance registration will help us get a more accurate count so we are able to order enough patches. There is also an option online to purchase "Duty to God" diamond patches for $3.50 each.

Care to help? Contact the Scout Office (607) 648-7888 Ext 110 and leave your name, number and email address for the Baden-Powell Duty to God Committee and a committee member will contact you.

More information will be available on the Baden-Powell Council Duty to God website,, at District meetings and Roundtables.
