Group Workshops Forming



Parents and Religious Recognitions Advisers – Often times the reason a Scout does not earn their religious awards or emblems is because they did not know how to find an adviser or even know where a workshop was being held. To help alleviate that, we have listed below the group workshops that we are currently aware of. Please note that this is not a complete list, as we are not always notified when a workshop is beginning. It is a good starting place for you though.


If you need more information about medals themselves, you can find it on  the BSA Recognitions or All Scout Recognitions page.  


If you are a Religious Recognitions Adviser and you are starting a workshop,  please send an email with the same information you see below to jolietcatholicscouts@gmail.com and we will post it for you so you may fill your group!


If you are NOT a Religious Recognitions Adviser yet and would like to be, please check our Training for Advisers page to find out more about the Adviser training classes being offered. If you have questions about how to become an Adviser, please send an email to jolietcatholicscouts@gmail.com


If you are looking for a trained adviser/counselor/facilitator in your area, click on the Trained Adviser List link. Note that we strive to keep the list updated, but sometimes advisers retire without telling us, so please forgive us for any errors in the list.
