Catholic Adveture Week June 25-July 1st at Swift Explorer Base Catholic Adventure Week, offered at the Swift Base of the S-F Scout Ranch, is sponsored by the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the BSA, the Office of Youth Ministry, and the Catholic Committee on Scouting, BSA.Catholic Adventure Week is coming up on July 10-16 at the scenic Swift Explorer Base on the S-f Scout Ranch near Farmington, MO.
Catholic Venturers and Boy Scouts from around the Region are invited to have an inspirational week of high adventure/Kodiak training, faith, and fun. Go to the link below on information/forms or contact Tom at email@example.com. Don't miss this very unique camp experience. Our goal in providing this week for our Catholic Scouts is to give them an experience of living their faith, growing in their faith, and loving their faith within the Scouting movement and especially out in the wonders of God’s creation.While at Swift for CAW, Scouts will be camping with their individual troops or Crews, under their particular adult leadership. Since a number of our participants are attending this camp in addition to their troop or crews summer camp, there will be cases where a Scout from a troop or crew does not have a leader present at camp. A “provisional unit” will be made for one of the camp sites, with leadership being provided by members of the Catholic Committee on Scouting, BSA. In the past this system has worked very well, and Scouts seem to mix easily with other Scouts, without the tension that can be experienced at a normal summer camp.While at CAW, Scouts will be exposed to the entire High Adventure program offered at Swift. Intertwined with the outstanding program offered by the Swift staff, merit badge program time, and there will be opportunities for prayer, religious instruction, and reflection. Meals are in the dining hall, a t-shirt is provided as a memento, and Mass on Friday. Program manuals will be made available in March. We will be offering again the “Voyageur program” for new Scouts.
To enroll your Troop, Crew and/or individual Scouts for this special summer camp week, turn in a Troop/Crew reservation form (if your Troop/Cfrew plans to attend with adult leadership) and turn in individual Scout forms, see link, for those Scouts wishing to be in the provisional unit.
