  • We are looking forward to a fun filled weekend combining Spiritual and Scouting Activities. This event is open to all Scouts (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, American Heritage Girls, Trail Life and Campfire Boys and Girls) and their families regardless of faith.

    You are welcome to attend for the entire weekend or come for the day on Saturday.

    Don't miss the awards recognition with the Bishop at Mass, where Scouts who have earned their religious emblems in the current 2019-20 year will be recognized and honored by name.

    Those who have earned the junior awards (Light of Christ, Parvuli Dei, Family of God and I Live My Faith) will be recognized by name. Those who have earned their senior awards (Ad Altare Dei, Pope Pius XII, Mary the First Disciple and The Spirit Alive) will receive their award from Bishop Hartmayer. The Bishop will pose with recipients for pictures after Mass. Dinner will be served after Mass at 6:30 p.m., and then we'll close out the day with a bonfire!

    All Scouts in attendance will receive a special commemorative patch.
