The Sam Houston Area Council is hosting the Seventeenth Annual Ten Commandments Hike in conjunction with Scout Sunday. This year we will host three separate hikes.

  • The Downtown Hike starting point will be announced in early February, check back on the Sam Houston Area website for updates.

Participants will enjoy viewing these historic and newer places of worship and hearing a brief presentation at each stop of the history of the building, the distinctive nature of their religious belief and a brief explanation of one of Ten Commandments. The hike includes an event patch for each participant.
