"A Scout is Reverent."

A Scouts Own Service is an interfaith worship service conducted by and for the youth of the troop on our campouts. The Chaplain's Aide normally prepares and conducts this service. If he is not available, another Scout may volunteer. There is a section on the Troop 413 Campout Signup.doc to list who will act as the Chaplain's Aide for each outing.

The form Troop 413 Scouts Own Service Planner.doc can help the Scout plan the service, with the help of the Chaplain, a parent, or other adult leaders. The plan should be reviewed by the Chaplain, Scoutmaster, or adult leader for the campout before the service is held.
