For Scouts BSA and Venturers, the Catholic Scout Retreat is September 29 – October 1, and is a three-day, two-night campout at Bovay Scout Ranch. The Retreat opens Friday evening with check-in, beginning at 7:00 p.m. All Saturday and Sunday meals are provided.
Alternately, participation can be a Saturday-only activity, with or without camping Saturday night, should other considerations preclude full weekend attendance. If so, check-in for Saturday is by 8 a.m.
The programming is both spiritual and fun featuring religious reflections and Scouting skills. The main events are on Saturday, with morning discussion sessions, afternoon activities and Mass, and ending with a campfire. Confessions and counseling are offered Saturday afternoon.
The camping roster and copies of the Annual Health and Medical Record for all in attendance must be turned in at check-in.
Counselors must register themselves, their Scouts, and other supporting adults as a group and make fee payment for the group as well. Scouts are not to register themselves. Only staff members and program volunteers may register individually.
