Information Overview:

 

Crew 3:16 and the Diocese Committee on Scouting want to invite you to their annual Ros-a-Ree Retreat / Camp Out. The 2019 date will be the weekend of August 9th-11th, 2019 (it will ALWAYS start the 2nd Friday in August). This year it will be held at St. John the Baptist Church located at 0S233 Church St, in Winfield, Illinois.

 

The theme for 2019 is Star Wars, and this year's event name is Faith Wars. It will focus on Combating Seduction of the Dark Side.

 

High Adventure

We are planning NEW and DIFFERENT activities, so if you were at the event in the past, (or heard how much fun you missed), you will want to attend the 2019 event for sure! To see some of the excitement and worship we had, then look below all the sign-up forms, (just under the ‘Links to the Informational Flyers and Registration Forms’), and you will find a group picture and below that are some videos of the last two Ros-a-Rees.

 

The event is open to all Catholics (regardless of Diocesan affiliation) who are registered with the American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Youth, Girl Scouts, Scouting BSA, & Venturers who will be entering the 6th grade (or higher) in the Fall. Space is limited so register your troop/youth early, (the early bird discount of $35 per attendee will end on 7/15/19, but you can still sign up provided there are still openings until the end of the day on 7/31/19 at the regular rate of $50 per attendee).

 

ALL properly filled out forms must be received BEFORE August 1, 2019 – No Exceptions. It should be noted that it is required that ALL attendees, (this includes adults who will be setting the example for our youth), will stay for the duration of the event and participate in ALL activities, (an exception is made for the activities marked as 'optional' on the schedule).

 

If you were at the either of the last events, bring your totem back with you to get new beads added! Space will be limited, so remember to get your forms in early!

 

To receive information about this and other events happening, send us an email to jolietcatholicscouts@gmail.com  Be sure to include your name, address, phone number, and email so we can keep you updated.
