Fall Scout Rendezvous to take place at London Mills the weekend of Sept. 16-18
The Diocese of Peoria’s Catholic Committee on Scouting has scheduled its annual Fall Scout Rendezvous for the weekend of Sept. 16-18 at Ingersoll Scout Reservation in London Mills.
The weekend of camping, games, and activities is designed for youth in the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts, and American Heritage Girls who have completed the fifth grade. Scouts from across the Diocese of Peoria as well as the Diocese of Davenport are invited.
The Rendezvous will include activities that are Catholic focused, including a Saturday afternoon Mass in the ISR chapel. The weekend fulfills the requirement for several of the religious emblem programs offered through Catholic Scouting. Every participant will receive an event patch and activity patch that highlights one of the American saints featured over the weekend.
Scout units are encouraged to attend as a group with appropriate adult leadership, but individual families may also participate. Overnight arrangements will be tent camping, and participants are asked to bring their own camping equipment. A day option is also being considered for families unable to stay overnight.
Cost for the weekend is $40 per person and includes meals, activities, patches, and materials. Need-based scholarship opportunities are available.
More information — including a registration form — is available on the Diocese of Peoria’s Catholic Committee on Scouting website, peoria-dccs.org, or by calling Linda Atherton at (217) 369-0080.
