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.

We offer training for adults who wish to serve as counselors for Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius X. Pre-registration for counselor training is due by September 20th. There is a $10 fee for counselor training.

A $10.00 fee is requested for each youth, 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.

Boy Scouts will work with counselors. Parents will be working with American Heritage Girls, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Boy 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.
