Announcement of Spirituality Award
Scouts Canada announced the approval of the new Spirituality Award in the March/April issue of Scouting Life.
The award is “inclusive, optional and interchangeable with the Religion in Life Award” and is intended to create “a climate of validity in which various philosophical positions can be experienced and/or affirmed.” In short, if you have a youth who wants to express spirituality but isn’t involved with any of the current Religion in Life Award partners, they can work towards the Spirituality Award.
Word about this award has been around for a little while and some Scouters were interested in working on it. I checked with National and currently the Award is only available for section participants (Cubs to Rovers.)
Details on the award can be found a www.scouts.ca. Click on About Us, Our Partners, Religion in Life.
Yours in Scouting
