For Scouts BSA and Venturers, the Catholic Scout Retreat is September 30 – October 2, and is a three-day, two-night campout at Bovay Scout Ranch. The Retreat opens Friday evening with check-in, beginning at 8:00 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.
Covid protocols will be communicated to counselor leads for the AAD and PPXII Emblems course participants and unit leaders for groups.
