I want to extend an invitation to Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts age 11 - 18
to participate in the 6th Annual Catholic Retreatoree to be held in
Williamsburg, VA on September 6, 7, 8, 1996. Cost is $15.00 per person.
Read on for more details.
Although this event is sponsored by the Catholic Committee of Scouting
(the Tidewater and Peninsula Committees co-sponsor it), Scouts do not
"have" to be Catholic in order to attend. The retreatoree will be held
at Camp Chickahominy in James City County (Williamsburg). The event
combines Boy Scout & Girl Scout activities (volleyball, swimming & other
outdoor fun events) as well as time to reflect during the retreat
sessions. Bishop Sullivan will celebrate mass on Saturday and visit
with the Scouts & Scouters.
Cost is $15.00 per person. This covers Friday night's cracker barrel,
three meals on Saturday (including steak & baked potato dinner!) and
Saturday night's cracker barrel (complete with a professional DJ) and
ends with Sunday Continental Breakfast. The fee also covers activity
insurance, patch & unit ribbon.
Payment is due in full by August 20. Payment is transferable but not
refundable. Checks should be made payable to Colonial Virginia Council
Troops/Scouts need to provide their own tents for camping. For local
Scouts, provisional camping is available (for both boys & girls).
You can directly mail payment & pertinant information (troop #, leader
name, address, phone, # of youth & # of adults) to:
878 Lacon Drive
Newport News, VA 23608
or e-mail me for additional information/formal registration form -
T-shirts are available (should be ordered in advance) for $10.00 each
(adult sizes S, M, L, XL) or $11.00 for XXL. Checks for T-shirts should
be issued to Catholic Committee on Scouting - Tidewater Council.
T-shirts ordered in advance will be available at the Retreatoree.
This is a really terrific event that brings hundreds of Boy & Girl
Scouts together and assists them in seeing how religon & scouting DO
