In a previous post, I mentioned how the Mormon Church (Also referred to Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or LDS) utilizes the Boy Scout Program as an integral part of their church's youth ministry. This Pamphlet talks about some of the details about the LDS-BSA relationship.
Within the LDS, Packs, Troops, Teams and Crews are sponsored by the church, and religious education is offered alongside the typical scouting program.
The LDS Church sponsors more BSA units than any other organization, 37,928 as of 2010.
This week, I'll be discussing some of the distinctive aspects of the LDS's Scouting program, and how it may differ from non-LDS units.
Disclaimer: I'm a Methodist, who is not fully familiar with the LDS Scouting Program. If I get any details wrong, I apologize. Please correct me if you notice any errors and I will correct them ASAP.
