What the Entire Pack is Doing Together...
Pack 403 is pleased to offer the Religious Emblems program once again this year. While all Cub Scout Ranks have a "Duty to God and You" required adventure, the Religious Emblems program goes above and beyond this to help you explore your faith more deeply with your scout son. It is an optional program and is worked on and completed cooperatively by the scout, his family, and their religious institution.
Pack 403 encourages participation in the Religious Emblem program and will help to support your son in earning this special achievement.
More detailed information can be found in the files attached: Duty to God Brochure, Powerpoint slide presentation and a letter to the parents with an information form. If you wish for your son to participate in this program, please complete the form in the parent letter and return to Sue by November 12, 2016 (contact info in parent letter). Any questions about this program can be directed to Sue as well.
