Religious Emblems Programs

Faith is an important part of Scouting programs and religious emblems programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers reinforce what is stressed in the 12th point of the Scout Law

A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.

Even if the members of your unit belong to different faiths, they can all earn the appropriate religious emblem. For most denominations, the appropirate materials can be found at the P.R.A.Y website. For Catholic emblems, see the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. For Jewish emblems, see the National Jewish Committee on Scouting. In many cases, materials are also available at your local Scout Shop.

Many councils also provide liaisons to the various denominations or other support. If you have Scouts in your unit who want to earn religious emblems, call your local council and find out what help is available. You might be surprised at the programs and support which are already in place.
