The Hike is open to all Scouts, families and friends. The Hike is a unique and exciting way to embrace all Faith communities, as well as to learn more about the history and uniqueness of each House of Worship or Prayer, in the old historic town of Haddonfield. The Hike entails with the entire group walking and stopping at various houses of prayer and is also a great way to show that citizens live the words, ‘Duty to God’, not just say them. It’s a unique and exciting way to embrace the concept of respect for religious differences, learn local history, participate in community service, and have fun. It allows all participants to visit different houses of worship or prayer, each with a representative of the Faith explaining one of the (Christian) Ten Commandments.
Over a 100 attendees at the First Presbyterian Church, Haddonfield, New Jersey

This event was enthusiastically attended by over a 100 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and adults from various religious backgrounds. Not only were the scouts curious but the adults showed a keen interest in learning as it was an eye-opener for many.
