It depends on your relationship with the group you are with. In my
troop, they ask me to say grace at campouts and I do the Hamotzi (prayer
over bread). Nobody minds. At a district camporee, I don't know.
Haven't tried it yet. When I do a benediction or invocation, there is no
Jesus or Abrahams or any references other than Lord or such.
