At the heart of the Scouting movement is "Duty To God". Our Scout Oath and Law stress the importance of reverence toward God.
The Religious Emblems Programs are key spiritual components of the Scouting movement. The programs were created by various religious groups to encourage youth to grow stronger in their faith. These religious groups, not the Boy Scouts of America, have created the religious emblems programs themselves. The BSA has approved these programs and allows the recognition to be worn on the official uniform, but each religious organization develops and administers its own program.
The Circle Ten Council Religious Relationships Committee extends its gratitude to all adults involved with the spiritual development of our young people.
