 Again this year the SGV Council, Boy Scouts of America, Religious Relationship Committee, 
invites all Boy and Girl Scouts - of all ages, their leaders and family members - to join the annual 5.2 
mile “10 Commandments Hike” - this year in Monrovia and Arcadia on Saturday, February 9 - during 
which they will visit 8* different churches. Two churches will share their sanctuaries with another faith 
that does not have a Faith Center. At each church, a member of the clergy or congregation will speak 
about one of the Ten Commandments and provide a brief history or background about their faith. 

 This “Ten Commandments Hike” helps highlight the importance of Reverence, Honor to God and 
respect for the beliefs of others. This helps emphasize the importance of the Scout Pledges:

“A Scout is reverent. A Scout is reverent towards God. He is Faithful in his religious duties. He 
respects the beliefs of others” (Boy Scout Handbook)

“On my honor, I will try to serve God ... (Girl Scout Promise)

 A registration fee of $4.00 is required for each Cub, Brownie, Scout or Scouter, Leader or Family 
member. If the Scout participant wishes a Patch from the event, it may be ordered at the start of the 
hike with payment of an additional $1.00 and may be picked up after the Hike. 

 Tour Permits / Troop Trip Applications must be filed with the participant’s council / service unit. 
Medical release forms must be carried by each participant. Each entrant must bring a brown bag lunch 
and enough water for the Hike. 

 The 2013 Ten Commandments Hike XIV will begin at 8:00 a.m. (7:15 am for on-site registration) 
at Arabic Evangelical Church, 1607 S. Magnolia Ave. Monrovia, CA. Drivers are advised that 
after dropping off their Scouts and Adult Supervisors, they may drive directly to the last church, 
Annunciation Catholic Church, 1307 E. Longden Ave. Arcadia, CA, by following directions for 
parking. A shuttle will return drivers to the starting point.
