Every year, all units (packs, troops, crews, ships) are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. The BSA issues charters to community organizations to enable them to use the Scouting program under their own leadership as a service to their children, youth, and families. Re-chartering is the process of renewing the charter agreement between the BSA and the organization and renewing the registration of youth and adult members.
Rechartering on time is critical. It is required for Journey to Excellence. It is required for units to continue registration without interruption. It is required to ensure Scouts are registered, critical for receiving rank advancement and other awards, and for insurance coverage.
The Internet Recharter (IR) site will officially open up on November 1, 2020, but there's a lot units can be working on right now to make the recharter process go smooth.
1. Unit packets will be distributed via email in .pdf format. Review the Recharter Workshop presentation.
2. Prepare and plan ahead to get recharter done early, as this time of the year is typically very busy. It takes time to gather information and collect fees and signatures.
- Schedule: It is recommended that recharters be submitted the 1st or 2nd Thursday in December (12/3/20 or 12/10/20). They can also be turned in on 12/12/20 from 9:00 am - noon at the council office for last-minute turn-in. The deadline is 12/15/20 at the Cockrell Scout Center.
- Review recharter resources
- Contact your unit commissioner or district commissioner for assistance.

A Scout is reverent. They are reverent toward God. They are faithful in their religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the religious emblems programs. Additional resources are available from Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y). The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. A class for the Catholic Ad Altare Dei (7th graders and older up to 18) and the Catholic Pope Pius XII for (9th graders and older up to 21) is currently being scheduled.
