Catholic Committee on Scouting (CCOS)

Diocese of Rockville Centre      

(Updated December 6, 2017)

 

Scouting is an effective way to help Catholic youths to do their duty to God and to their country. Scouting builds character and teaches devotion to God in an environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models. The scouting programs provide a wonderful channel to involve youth in the life of Catholic parishes.



Young people experience Scouting as a growth into personal maturity and social responsibility. They learn to assume their role in life with a high degree of commitment, and to care for others who are less fortunate. They develop a strong desire to build a culture of goodwill, respect for the environment and acceptance of duties.



Visit this website often for updated resources and support for all aspects of Catholic Scouting! There is something for everyone - from parents to pastors; from Tigers to Eagles, from Den Leaders to Diocesan Committees.
