Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book/Recreation/Hiking - Advanced
Note that the South Pacific Division refers to General Conference Hiking Honor as Hiking 1 and this Honor as Hiking 2. For sake of consistency between honors in this wiki we refer to the Hiking 2 Honor as Hiking - Advanced.
1. Have the Hiking 1 Honour.
Advice and guidance on the Adventist_Youth_Honors_Answer_Book/Recreation/Hiking Hiking Honor can be found in the Adventist_Youth_Honors_Answer_Book/Recreation Recreation section.
==2. Complete at least two of the following. Note: In situations where there are Pathfinders etc available to do the Hiking 1 Honour, it is expected that options ‘a’ and ‘b’ will be fulfilled. Options ‘c’ or ‘d’ can only be done if it is impractical to do option ‘a’ or option ‘b’. a. Participate in the training of others in the Hiking 1 Honour b. Assist in organising and accompany a person (or persons) in fulfilling at least two of the hikes listed in Requirement 11 of the Hiking 1 Honour. c. Develop a set of comprehensive notes which may be used for training others in the Hiking 1 Honour d. Make a presentation on the skills you have gained in earning the Hiking 1 Honour. Include at least three memorable events. ==
If you teach the honor you can add both the Advanced Star and the Teaching Diamond to your Hiking Patch.
3. Make two brief presentations on ‘hiking’ events in scripture.
Topics could include:
- Moses climbing Mount Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments. He hiked up and camped for a long time.
- David and his men hiked and camped in the wilderness to flee Saul.
- Others you may think of.
==4. Have the following hiking record, which includes a fully detailed log. At least one hike must be done in untracked conditions: a. Two (2) hikes: duration three (3) days and two (2) nights b. One (1) hike: duration five (5) days and four (4) nights==
We understand "untracked conditions" to be off trail. Exercise caution off trail as you may encounter hazards generally avoided by established trails. Many areas do not permit hiking off the established trails.
