District Religious Emblem Coordinator

Posted on Jul 28 2014 - 11:05pm

Scouters,

At the end of 2012, The BSA National Relationship Committee released the information that a new position at the Council, District and Unit was being introduced. The position is called the Religious Emblem Coordinator. This position was to help the young people become aware of the God and Country Award that could be earned. Everyone of the members of the National Religious Award Committee was for this new position. It has taken a little over a year to get all of the details worked out and setting up the Council Religious Emblems Coordinator position functioning. This committee is under the Relationships Committee at the Council Level.  Each district in the Council has a person to serving as the District Religious Emblem Coordinator(DREC). Now we are beginning to set up the Unit Religious Coordinator position on the Unit Committee (UREC). The UREC is a member of the Unit Committee and his job is to assist the members of the unit to get the necessary information for each boy or girl in the unit to earn their Religious Award .  It is not the UREC’s job to be a counselor for each award.

In the Scout Handbook is a section on the God and Country award which show what award is available for each religion and how to make contact. If that information is not in the handbook there is a pamphlet available at the Scout Office. Another place that a scout can go is to the website for P.R.A.Y. which is for the Protestant Churches.  The Catholic Church has a similar web site.

This committee person is to make that part of the Scout Oath and Law more visible in our Scouting Units.  Additional information will be made available at the Phoenix District Roundtables in the future.

Scouting Success Stories in Phoenix

Posted on Jul 2 2012 - 9:32pm

Hey Scouters,

Did you know in our very own district we have:

  • a Webelos Scout who used his Readyman training he learned the week before to save his mother from choking
  • a Wolf Cub Scout that told one of his Pack Leaders, that since he joined Cub Scouts, he "doesn't lie anymore"
  • a Scout Troop that organized a bottled water drive to provide relief for firefighters that were battling last year's wildfires

Many Scouting success stories don't involve saving your Mom's life, but they are no less important!  Stories involving Leadership, Citizenship, Service . . . these successes happen everyday and are the result of Scouts and Scouters participating in the various programs of the Phoenix District in the Sam Houston Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America!

Please share your Scout Stories with us so that we can all learn, appreciate, and enjoy . . . send your story to ScoutingSuccessStory@PhoenixBSA.org
