Catholic Adventure Week will be held the week of July 10-16, 2016 at Swift Explorer Base of the S bar F Scout Ranch, which is near Farmington, Missouri. The weeklong high adventure retreat is sponsored by the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the BSA, the Office of Youth Ministry, and the Catholic Committee on Scouting, BSA. The theme for the 2016 Catholic Adventure Week is “The Year of Mercy.”
Catholic Venturers and Boy Scouts from around the region are invited to participate in an inspirational week of high adventure/Kodiak training, faith, and fun. The goal in providing this week for our Catholic Scouts is to give them the experience of living their faith, growing in their faith, and loving their faith within the Scouting movement and especially out in the wonders of God’s creation. While at CAW, Scouts will be exposed to the entire High Adventure program offered at Swift. Intertwined with the outstanding program offered by the Swift staff and merit badge program time, there will be opportunities for prayer, religious instruction, and reflection.
