Religious Emblems Program

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.

Purpose of the Program:         

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.

Please click on the PDF link for information on the awards for each religion.

How Do We Get Started on These Programs?

1. Youth members must obtain the specific booklet for their religion.

2. Parents must review the program guidelines.

3. Families should talk to their religious leaders and show them the booklet before beginning any program.

4. The youth member needs to complete the requirements, obtain the proper signatures, and order the emblem.
