P.R.A.Y., who develops curriculum for religious emblems including the Bible Basics RP3 patches, is excited about the creativity and overall success of this first encampment. According to P.R.A.Y. CEO Jason Noland, “Combining MPMF with the RP3 patches, congregations have a ready-made Bible curriculum to perform outreach into the Girl Scout community. Churches that currently use the P.R.A.Y. awards (i.e., God and Me, God and Family, etc.) may not be familiar with our Bible patches and the opportunities they present to deepen and extend their youth ministry through Scouting. We encourage you to request this free curriculum.”
Susan Lawyer already has plans for the next encampment. “I’d love to have the next one at one of our council camps and include and invite from a broader area of people. We have a Casa Mare Girl Scout camp down at the coast - so I was thinking it would be the perfect location to do the “Out of the Water” Bible patch.”
