Ten Commandments Hke
Read about a Great Idea for Scouting from Illinois. Scouts there particpated in a Ten Commandments hike.
Here is the prayer from the Greater St. Louis Area Council's S-F Camp:
For the gifts of food and freedom
and the hills to roam,
For crimson sunsets
and the earth our home,
For the stars at night
and the gentle winds in trees
we thatnk you great spirit for all these.
As you gather around the campfire after the day's work is done and all are weary
from the day's fun and toil, take a minute to blow on that spark which is every
boy that it may flame into growth and as the embers begin to glow, point out the
awesome wonders in the night sky. Ask each Scout as he prepares to sleep to take
a moment to reflect upon his place in all that wonderment, pondering on his duty
to God and country.
May the Great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with you always,
Mike and Jim
