Focus of the Trek 

  • First-hand experience of many of the Scouting-recognized paths to Duty to God and Reverence 
  • Foster mutual respect, tolerance for diversity, and curiosity among Scouts for the many religions recognized by Scouting (39) for the purpose of religious emblems 
  • Show consistencies among religions, so Scouts will come to identify with, accept and respect each as paths to God and holiness 
  • Show differences among religions that make each unique and special to their adherents 
  • Allow Scouts to observe and experience worship practices and services of each religion, preceded or followed by explanations of the religious practices the scouts observed and themed discussion: religious values of and consistent with the Ten Commandments 
  • For Abrahamic faiths – discuss two or three of the Ten Commandments; for non-Abrahamic faiths – discuss universal key values and ethical principles of your faith that are consistent with the Ten Commandments (to be visited on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023: Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Community of Christ)
