A Scout is reverent.  He is reverent toward God.  He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.  To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed specific religious emblems programs. The Boy Scouts of America has approved these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform.


Troop 1299 is proud to offer leadership and coaching for those Scouts interested in earning the religious emblem specific to their religious preference.

  5. Scouts need to complete the requirements, obtain the proper signatures, and then Troop 1299 will order the emblem for them.
