Scout retreat to be held in Newfield


The Southern New Jersey Council, the Jersey Shore Council, and the Camden Diocese will present a Scouting Retreat for Boy and Girl Scouts, and youth groups, called “Jesus Christ in the Movies,” to be held at Girl Scout Camp Sacajawea in Newfield, on Saturday, April 21.

The retreat, from 8:45 a.m.-7 p.m., will have Scouts learn about self-sacrifice, forgiveness, unconditional love, and salvation through the screening of movie clips. Scouts will have the opportunity to create their own movie scenes, which will be taped and shown at a Movie Premiere later in the day. The day will conclude with Mass that will be open to parents.

The retreat is for Webelos, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts, and youth group members, in Grades 5 and up. The cost is $15 per person, and the registration deadline is April 10.

Scouts are asked to bring their Class A Uniform for Mass. The day satisfies the requirements for the Scouts Religious Awards. For questions or to register, call Rusty Brady, 856-455-3992.
