NEW LOCATION: FAMOUS EAGLE

Just in: Bishop Rivituso will be celebrating Mass with us!

The week is sponsored by the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the BSA, the Office of Youth Ministry, and the Catholic Committee on Scouting, BSA

Catholic Venturers and Boy Scouts from around the region are invited to have an awesome camp week with training, faith, and fun.  Don't miss this very unique camp experience.  

Our goal in providing this week is to give scouts an experience of living, growing, and loving their faith within the Scouting movement and especially out in the wonders of God’s creation.
Open to all Boy and Venture Scouts!

Our goal in providing this week is to give scouts an experience of living, growing, and loving their faith within the Scouting movement and especially out in the wonders of God’s creation.

We will have our own campsites for the week at Famous Eagle. Scouts will be camping with their individual troops or Crews, under their particular adult leadership. Since a number of our participants are attending this camp in addition to their troop or crews summer camp, there will be cases where a Scout from a troop or crew does not have a leader present at camp.  A “provisional unit” will be made for one of the camp sites, with leadership being provided by members of the Catholic Committee on Scouting, BSA. Scouts will be offered the full merit badge offerings, and there will be opportunities for prayer, faith breakout sessions, and reflection.  Meals are in the dining hall, there will be additional snacks for this week, Mass with a bishop, and other exciting excursions as the Catholic Adventure Week group.  

 

To enroll your Troop, Crew and/or individual Scouts for this special summer camp week, turn in a Troop/Crew reservation form (if your Troop/Cfrew plans to attend with adult leadership) and turn in individual Scout forms, see link, for those Scouts wishing to be in the provisional unit.    Contact Kevin Buhr for more information at kbuhr@stlbsa.org
