106-Miler Backpacking Medal

Orange County

MPA& Channel Island Adventure Award.jpg

Backpack and hike 106 cumulative miles over the course of multiple scouting events.  


The purpose of this medal is to motivate scouts who are relatively early in their scouting career with backpacking & hiking.  Mileage over the course of several trips quickly adds up, and before too long a scout will be able to proudly wear this "bling" on their uniform.  


Why 106 miles?  It is half the distance of the iconic John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, symbolizing the scout's achievement and also the fact that many more adventures still await!
