Available to Members of the Boy Scouts of America

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.

To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith,
religious groups have developed the following religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved
of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups
administer the programs. Check with your local council service center or contact the religious organization
directly to obtain the curriculum booklets.
