The purpose of the RIM OF THE BAY patch program is to encourage hiking and to bring into the lives of our Scouts a “mountaintop” experience. Six Mountains surround our area that you hike up. When you finish the first mountain, you get a patch and a “rocker” with the name of the mountain. Rockers are awarded for each additional hike completed.
