This site is dedicated to providing Christian and Interfaith resources to Chaplains and Chaplain Aide in the Boy Scouts, to help each boy participate, more fully, in his chosen faith.



Welcome to the Minsi Trails Chaplain Corps Site.  This site was born from a frustration about the scant resource materials available to BSA Troop Chaplains and Chaplain Aides.  Many new sites have appeared, and more are being added. The materials presented here are not made available because they are in anyway seen as exemplary.   They merely represent some of the work that I have done over the years with Troop 71 in Macungie, PA.  The field services can be printed as is, and then photocopied with relevent material added/removed via cut/paste.   I will be adding to the material online as time permits.

Please use these materials in the spirit in which they are offered.  I have made every effort to acknowledge authors where I have used their work.  If I have missed any, please let me know.  As far as I know, all the materials here can be used without any third party copy infringements.


Many of the files here are presented in Adobe Acrobat format.  I have included a link for those who need this reader.  I use a Mac Book Pro, for my primary computer, but I will include Microsoft compatible files when possible.
