Religious Emblems

The Religious Emblem program was developed by Scouters and Church leaders as a way to deepen the faith and understanding of our Scouts. 
- These medals can be worn on Scout uniforms.
- They can be earned as individuals but are often accomplished in a group of Scouts.
- Counselors can be found to work with any interested Youth in practically any denomination.

The Boy Scouts of America Publication "Duty to God" contains a description of the program and awards available. This publication is attached below.

If you are interested in any of the many religious emblem programs, please contact Tom Lundquist ( or Kathy Lull ( or 757-572-3882) for more information.
