The Diocese Committee on Scouting wants to invite you to their annual Day of Reflection Retreat. The 2019 date has been announced! It will be on Saturday, February 23, 2019 (it will ALWAYS be the last Saturday in February).  It will run from 9am - 1pm (Registration Opens at 8:30am).  The place will be St. Ambrose parish located at 1705 Burry Circle Crest Hill, Illinois.


The theme for 2019 has not yet been decided upon but watch this web page for more details!


The event is open to all registered American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Youth, Girl Scouts, & Venturers who will be entering Kindergarten, (or higher), in the Fall. Note that those in grades K-5 must have a guardian present. Space is limited so register your troop/youth early.


The costs are $15 for Scouts / $8 for Parents (attending as chaperones). Religious Recognition Workbooks (if needed) will be available, and the price ranges from $5 - $8 per book.


ALL properly filled out forms must be received BEFORE February 15, 2019 – No Exceptions and no Walk-Ins Allowed.
