Cutter 50th Anniversary 5K Walking Challenge!

We challenge you to walk 5 kilometers from late October to Thanksgiving! Why 5 kilometers? Because this year we celebrate Cutter Scout Reservation’s 50th Anniversary (1970-2020). Walk one kilometer for each decade Cutter Scout Reservation has served as a fantastic camp for thousands of Scouts and families. Many of us would love to spend multiple weekends up at Cutter Scout Reservation or Boulder Creek Scout Reservation this month, and hopefully one day we can again but for right now get outside and walk! So, over the month of November we not only want you to stay Mentally Awake participating in our Reading Challenge we started last month, but also stay Physically Strong by tracking your steps every day from now until Thanksgiving to see if you can walk 5 kilometers!

5K not enough?

Try walking 50K, one kilometer for each year. Or try for the number of years Boulder Creek Scout Reservation has been with us and do 54K!

Help raise money for more Scouting programs with every step you take this month by turning your steps into programs for Scouts!

Challenge family members to do it with you or to support the programs you remember at camp by donating $50–one dollar for every year Cutter Scout Reservation has been around. Have them donate below and mark it with your name and the unit number as “CSR50.” Whoever raises the most money with their fundraiser will also receive a Cutter Scout Reservation Mystery Box*! Have friends and family pledge toward your fundraising goal by sharing this fillable 5K Challenge pledge form.

*Cutter Scout Reservation Mystery box includes an assortment of items from the Cutter Scout Reservation Trading Post that survived the fire. Items valued at an estimated $100.
