The Joliet Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting (JDCCS) wants to invite you to their annual Day of Recollection. The 2021 date has been announced! It will be on Saturday, February 27, 2021 (it will ALWAYS be the last Saturday in February).  It will run from 9am - 1pm (Registration Opens at 8:30am).  This year it will be at the National Shrine and Museum of St. Therese located at 8501 Bailey Road, Darien, Illinois. Attendees are welcome (and encouraged) to tour the museum after the event.


The theme for 2021 is Help People at All Times. The topic for All Scouts and parents will be on Being Helpful.

 

A VIRTUAL PROGRAM is also planned in case COVID-19 restrictions prevent meeting in person at the Shrine. We must have an email address for each participant and permission for the child to participate online. An email will be sent to parents and to the child’s own email with instructions on how to participate in the virtual program. Note: the fee will remain the same. Any materials for the virtual retreat and patch will be mailed out ahead of time. Alternatively: JDCCS may change the location if we can safely meet in person somewhere else. We will notify participants BY EMAIL well in advance of any changes. WATCH FOR EMAIL NOTICES OF UPDATES!

 

The event is open to all registered American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts, Brownies, Camp Fire Youth, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Scouts BSA, & Venturers who will be entering Kindergarten, (or higher), in the Fall. Note that those in grades K-5 must have a parent or guardian present. Space is limited, so register your troop/youth early. Adult Scouts attending the event with or for their unit / troop members but not as their chaperone will also need to pay admission at the door or register in advance.

 

The early bird costs are $10 for Scouts / $10 for Parents (attending or acting as chaperones). After February 15th, the regular charge of $15 for Scouts and $15 for Parents will apply. Fee will include a patch and totem.

 

ALL properly filled out forms must be received BEFORE February 15, 2021 to receive the Early Bird rate - No Exceptions

 

Walk-Ins are Welcome!

 

If you were at the either of the last events, bring your totem back with you to get new beads added!
