Scouts Prepare for Annual Retreat at St. Basil’s Academy.


The 2016 Annual Orthodox Religious Scouting Retreat is scheduled for October 8-9th at St. Basil’s Academy in Garrison, NY.

This year’s theme: Spiritual Athletics.

The event is an amazing opportunity for Orthodox scouts to gather for fellowship and reflection. Seminarians and students from Hellenic College-Holy Cross lead the retreat for the Boy, Cub, and Girls Scouts.
