Boy Scout and Girl Scout Catholic Retreatoree
All Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in Grade 5 and up are invited to attend this fun filled weekend! Sponsored by the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting and the Office for Evangelization and Faith Formation, the weekend will be held September 22-24, 2017 at Camp Conestoga in Bakersville (located on Route 31 between Donegal and Somerset in Laurel Hills State Park). The Retreatoree is open to all Scouts, but will be Catholic oriented and will contain and uphold the teachings of the Catholic Church. The Retreatoree is open to all Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Venture Scouts, Explorers, and Webelos Scouts in Grades 5 and up. The
total cost per person is
$25 (if registered by 9/15/2017) which includes meals, snacks, patch and program.
Adults who are ONLY planning to attend the Catholic Leadership Development Program on Saturday, and not attend the Retreatoree, please select the second option during registration. The cost is $10, which covers program materials.
The weekend will end with Mass on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Families are invited to attend Sunday morning Mass.
All participants must be registered Scouts, Scouters or their parents/guardians. All participants, male and female, will be camping in tents for the weekend. Attendees must provide their own tents for the weekend. All units must provide two-deep leadership for the weekend unless prior arrangements are made with another unit. Individual attendees must be accompanied by an adult family member or guardian or make arrangements to camp with another unit. Please notify the Retreatoree committee in advance if you need to camp with a ‘Provisional Unit’ so that arrangements for leadership can be made.
Check-in at Camp Conestoga begins Friday, September 22 at 6:00 p.m. and the
program will begin at 8:00 p.m. A current Annual Health and Medical Record Form (Parts A and B) is required for each registrant and should be brought to check-in.
