To celebrate the end of the first month of my 100 Days of Scouting (is that a thing?), I'm so happy to report that the pack Hiking Club is official! Today I sent the message to the parents letting them know what it's about, and when it starts. I also updated the pack website HERE if anyone is interested in seeing what we're up to. We'll still need to publish the full recognition schedule, but I'm really excited to finally get this thing off the ground. I think the kids will have a great time, and I'm looking forward to incorporating things like Leave No Trace, map & compass, belt loops, the Fun for the Family award, and much else.
We're located in Northern Kentucky, in the Greater Cincinnati area, which offers plenty of great places to hike. We should easily be able to go more than a year before we have to go back to the same place. Unless we find any pack favorites. I'm already a big fan of the California Woods Nature Preserve. Their website doesn't come close to doing it justice, but if you're in the area, check it out.
If you do check out our pack's plan and have any suggestions or feedback, I'd really appreciate if you'd let me know in the comments to this post.
