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.
This website provides 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. Site content is updated regularly.
