Scouting in the Catholic Church

July 14 - July 20

Scouting in the Catholic Church

This course is an opportunity for participants to strengthen their faith and to see more clearly the connection and interaction between the Catholic faith and the programs of the Boy Scouts of America.  Designed for any adult interested in using Scouting to help support Catholic youth ministry in a Catholic chartered unit or other unit, this conference is especially appropriate for Scout chaplains, clergy, diocesan or parish youth ministers, and council, diocesan, regional and national Catholic committee leadership and members. 

The goals of the conference are to help participants understand how Scouting is Catholic youth ministry, gain knowledge about Catholic Scouting resources, and use the information in the course to promote Catholic Scouting in their home dioceses and councils.  All this happens in a context of learning, fellowship and fun!

The conference includes four daily components:

  1. Deeping one’s faith in Christ through scripture, reflection, and sharing as set forth in the NCCS National Catholic Leadership Development training program;
  2. Understanding youth ministry through the USCCB’s Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry and applying this to a Scouting context;
  3. Reviewing relevant sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church; and
  4. Discussing how best to deliver the mission and programs of the NCCS.

During the course, participant will meet and interact with the current bishop liaison to the NCCS and Scouts just completing the St. George Trek.  (Find additional information on the National Catholic Committee on Scouting’s website.)
