Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Pack Chaplain
Fri, 19 Feb 1999 16:01:26 EST
Since I had the resource I turned to the Chaplain for the National Association
of Presbyterian Scouters (George Hupp) about the question. His response:
>Yes! Use the same criteria, patch and job description as for any other
>unit. To pray before meals; lead worship services; provide counseling where
>needed. We hire a chaplain for Cub Camp for Dan Beard, and I serve as
Chaplain >for our Pack. It is unfortunate that the role is so invisible.
For the record, the job description and roles are laid out in the course some
of the NAPS members out west devised for a one day trainng for unit chaplains
and chaplain aides. And as soon as we get the 1/2" packet on a hard drive we
will post the entire course to the NAPS website for others to pick at and
customize for their home councils. I'll let you all know when its completed.
