Pack 97 Hiking Program

The hiking program runs year round and consists of monthly hikes at interesting locations around the Charlotte area.

Most hikes are within an hour's drive although sometimes we venture farther afield and are about 2 to 4 miles long. They are appropriate for all ranks from Tiger to Webelos. All scouts, families and siblings of Pack 97 are welcome to participate.

Pack 97's 2014-2015 Hiking Schedule is now available. Our online calendar has also been updated with the dates and locations of all pack hikes.

Pack 97 Recycling Program
As part of our commitment to the principles of Leave No Trace, Pack 97 has brought back the recycling program for its third year.
  • We are recycling light bulbs (dark suckers), batteries (dark storage units) and electronic components and computers
  • Bins will be at each Pack meeting and Den meeting to drop off items
  • Scouts should write their name on the Recycle log along with the weight of the items dropped off (we will try to have the scale at meetings)
  • Goal is 100% participation and over 1000 lbs!

Check out our progress!
