The Duty to God Weekend is open to all youth from Kindergarten through 12th grade and adults. All are welcome (siblings, youth groups, etc.) as a student does not need to be a Scout to participate.
Detailed info for each program can be found using the links below:
This year, we will offer the RP3 programs (Protestant) and NCCS Religious Activity programs (Catholic). These programs can be used to meet some/all Adventure Loop requirements (Cub Scouts) and Duty to God requirements (Scouts BSA). Participants will receive a patch upon completion! Adults can also participate and earn the patch. For more info, go to:
Protestant* at www.praypub.org/rp3

*we have been given permission to use a modified version of the RP3 program for the weekend to ensure completion over the weekend.
