Boy Scout Troop 60 hikes toward merit badge

Scout Troop 60 took a short break during their 5 mile hike as they walked toward completing the Hiking Merit Badge. This badge is not for the faint of heart but, if a scout can commit to it, they truly have the determination needed to become an Eagle Scout. To earn the hiking merit badge, a scout needs to complete a dreaded 20-miler, plus five other difficult hikes.

Scout Troop 60 was chartered in 1928 and is one of the oldest BSA Scout Troops in Norwela Council. The Troop is open to 6th-12th graders. It meets every Monday at 6 pm at the First United Methodist Church in Natchitoches.
