Scouts will learn more about their Catholic Faith with a day full of activities tailored for their respective scouting program. We will grow in our Catholic Christian beliefs by listening, sharing, praying, singing, and playing. The day’s activities are designed to jump start a scout’s endeavors in working toward the religious award for their rank. We will also complete a Rosary and a Saint Patch. Youth not working on emblems can attend a Chaplain’s Aid Session.


A $10.00 fee is requested for each youth or adult that are attending training, and $3.00 for each parent who attends the retreat. Emblem sessions are in the afternoon and patch work will be in the morning. Feel free to attend all or part of the day, however the registration fees are the same for a whole or partial day.


Scouts BSA will work with counselors. Parents will be working with American Heritage Girls, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts throughout their award program. These parents are strongly encouraged to stay for the retreat. Lunch will be provided. Registered youth will receive a retreat patch. Books for each award will be available for purchase at the retreat, pre-ordering is recommended to insure that there are enough books.


*Child of God and Ave Maria books are available to download from the CCOS Website


There will also be training for Scouts BSA Chaplain’s Aide along with Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII religious emblems counselor training.
