HOST—HISTORY OF SCOUTING TOUR– 10 miles

On January 9, 2016, Troop 457 Pioneer scouts set out on an adventure to explore the history of America. First, they toured the U.S. Capitol. Then, they went on the James E. West HOST hike. They went to 21 different spots in DC and hiked 10 miles. Led by Mr. Kushner and other adults, they visited the US Supreme Court, White House, and answered challenge questions at all 21 sites. The hardest challenges were at the Einstein statue and the World War II memorial. Pioneers worked together to solve all the challenges.
