How Far Can We Go?

What is the farthest hike you have done? How far have you hiked with your Section? Go on a series of hikes throughout the year and add up their distances – mark this distance on a map of your city or province to see how far you have hiked!

Plan

  • What are some places you would like to visit on hikes?
  • When will you go on each hike?
  • What do you need to wear? What do you need to pack?
  • What snacks will you bring?

Do

As a team or Section, pick out some places you would like to visit on hikes, and then list your hikes so that each is longer than the one before. Plan to take the hikes over a few months. After you are done hiking to every place on your list, add up the total distance from your hikes to see how far you have gone!
