The Diocese Committee on Scouting wants to invite you to their annual Day of Recollection. The 2020 date has been announced! It will be on Saturday, February 29, 2020 (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 2020 is Leap Into Faith (February 29th is a Leap Day too!). The topic for younger Scouts will be Discipleship.  For older Scouts, the topic will be Leap of Faith.


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 guardian present. Space is limited, so register your troop/youth early.


The early bird costs are $5 for Scouts / $5 for Parents (attending as chaperones). After February 15th, the regular charge of $10 for Scouts and $10 for Parents will apply.


ALL properly filled out forms must be received BEFORE February 15, 2020 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!
