There are 4 Religious Emblem programs available for scouts to earn. Two that can be earned by Cub Scouts, two that can be earned by Boy Scouts, and one that can be earned by Boy Scouts and Venturing crew members. By completing any of the Religious Emblems, the scout is also entitled to wear the BSA Religious Knot. Scouts are encourage to earn all 4 emblems while they are on their Scouting and faith journeys.

In addition, there are a couple of funds available that directly assist the clergy and international scouting. The Adult Leaders are entitled to wear the BSA Adult Religious Knot if they recieve the St. George recognition.
