When camping in the cold weather scouts can accumulate “Degrees of Freeze” points. One point is obtained for every 1 degree below 32 degrees that a scout sleeps outside. When a scout reaches 100 Degrees of Freeze points they earn a special patch which can proud display their achievement.
The graph below shows the accumulated Degrees of Freeze points as of March 2020.
Check here for an update of your hiking mileage status.
Accumulate mileage on scouting events to earn: At 25 miles – Troop 407 T-shirt At 75 miles – Troop 407 nalgene water bottle At 250 miles – Troop 407 fleece
Mileage is earned at: Parades, Roadside cleanup, Event hikes, Hikes: Sunday, Saturday or High Adventure
During this time of the Stay-at-home due to COVID-19, scouts can get credit for hikes, walks with their family, walking the dog, walking to school. Track the mileage and send it to Mr Thomson and we will credit the mileage. HIKE-ON!

Mr Thomson reach a WooHoo milestone of 1,000 miles with the troop. A great achievement and well done!
Join us for a hike twice a month and earn hiking mileage toward the 25 miler shirt, 75 mile water bottle or 250 mile fleece jacket. Hikes are chosen based on the experience of those who show anything from an easy Mileslip hike to an intermediate Pack Monadnock to an advanced hike on Grand Monadnock.
Bring good hiking boots, water and snacks. In cold weather bring a jacket.
HIKES DO NOT OCCUR when other troop events are happening on the same day.
