BSA Religious Emblems

Duty to God is an important tenet of the Scouting program. It is intended to encourage youth to pursue their own spiritual journey through the traditions of their families and faith.  
"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."

The Religious Emblems Program exists to encourage members to grow stronger in their faith. Religious groups develop their own program materials. BSA approves them and then allows awarded emblems to be worn on the official uniform.

The various religious groups administer the programs, not unit leaders. Contact your religious organization for books and materials. The Denver Scout Shop carries a limited selection. The Cub Scout program requires all ranks to complete a "Duty to God" adventure according to the faith tradition of the Scout's family.  Bears and Webelos may meet that requirement by earning the religious emblem of their faith.
