The Religious Emblems program is a program that allows boys to recognize their “Duty to God” and promise to “be reverent”.
Religious Emblems programs are written, maintained and approved by the various Faith Communities not by the BSA. The BSA acknowledges the values of each of those programs and heartily encourages participation and presentation of the achievement on the BSA uniform.
Program materials are written for your specific Faith or Beliefs and are directed toward age specific groups for all Scouting programs.
