Scouts learn religious diversity with hike

December 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment · Community

On Friday, November 28, the Long Beach Area Council Boy Scouts of America will sponsor the Second Annual “10 Commandments Hike” in the historic Belmont Heights/Rose Park area of Long Beach. The hike is open to all ages of Cub Scouts, Brownies, Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts and their parents. The purpose of the hike is to promote respect and appreciation for religious diversity in Long Beach.
At each 15-minute stop on the hike, the participants will hear a brief “children’s sermon” about one of the 10 Commandments, followed by background information about the history/beliefs of that faith and a question-and-answer period. The hike will cover approximately four miles and will start and finish at Belmont Heights Methodist Church, 317 Termino with stops at six different houses of worship along the way.
Registration for the hike is $5 per person (which includes a commemorative patch) and can be done at the office of the Long Beach Area Council Boy Scouts of America, 401 E. 37th Street. For more information, contact Nancy Schwartz at (562) 439-4462 or the Council Office at (562) 427-0911.
