  18. Webelos Badge-faith requirement • Reasons Why I chose to have my den focus on earning the religious emblem of their faith (d) rather than alternate requirement (e): • Its easier to organize. There are outside resources to help your den parents • you don’t sign off on requirements, the Scout’s religious leader does. Alternate (e) requires the Den leader’s signoff and some participation. • It’s the only award beside Arrow of Light the Scout can carry over to Boy Scouts

  19. Webelos Badge-faith requirements • P.R.A.Y “Programs of Religious Activities with Youth” Business Office) • Website: www.praypub.org • Cross reference 54 religious denominations with religious emblem awards recognized by Boy and Girl Scouts • religious organizations themselves retain all responsibility for curriculum development and establishing program guidelines, P.R.A.Y business office just process orders for materials on-line)
