2nd Tantallon Sparks Earn Hiking Patches

Hiking is where it’s at for the 2nd Tantallon Sparks Girl Guide unit. Over the last year, six of the Sparks took the Youth Hiker Distance Award Challenge in order to earn patches, or badges. For Girl Guides, there is a special challenge. Not only do they have to tally at least 15 km of hiking, but they also have to complete at least two of a list of other activities related to hiking. The 2nd Tantallon Sparks unit hiked more than 15 km on several occassions and they:

  • Researched and created a checklist of things you should bring on a hike to be safe and comfortable
  • Took part in a “Hug-A-Tree and Survive”
  • Learned about Leave No Trace Principles

Here are some photos of their hiking adventures:
