Religious Recognition Awards for Unitarian Universalist Scouts
Religious Recognition Awards for Unitarian Universalist Scouts

Both Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Scouts BSA encourage their members to earn a religious recognition. Religious recognitions are developed by the religious organization.

Girl Scouts

Religion in Life for Girl Scouts, our online resource, includes a program for younger girls and a program for older girls. Girl Scouts and Faith on the GSUSA website explains how religious recognition programs fit into Girl Scouting. The online Religion in Life for Girl Scouts program was developed and published by UUA Faith Development Office (FDO) staff.

Scouts BSA

Religion in Life for Scouts BSA was recently updated by the UUA Faith Development Office and is available at no charge online. For Cub Scouts and Webelos, Love and Help, a program in Unitarian Universalist identity for 7- to 11-year olds, is now available for purchase at inSpirit: UU Book and Gift shop.

UUA and Boy Scouts of America

On March 24, 2016, the Boy Souts of America and the Unitarian Universalist Association signed an historic Memorandum of Understanding to provide guidance to UU congregations who wish to sponsor Boy Scout troops. This move towards re-establishing organizational ties is due to the BSA’s recent policy changes making scouting more inclusive to gay scouts and gay scout leaders. Read the full announcement.
