The Oklahoma City Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting is a committee affiliated with the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City Youth and Young Adult Ministry serving the Cimarron and Last Frontier Councils of the Boy Scouts of America and the Redlands Council of Girl Scouts USA. The Committee is dedicated to promoting Duty to God at each level of Scouting. We are affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, National Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and Camp Fire, and Region 10 of the NCCS and NFCYM.
Each year the Oklahoma City Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting holds several events to promote Catholic Scouting. These events include a Fall Encampment - An Outdoor Retreat Experience (Grades 5-12), Winter One-Day Retreat (Grades 1-4), Day of Reflection (Grades 6-12, Religious Emblem Candidates), Religious Emblems Counselor Training, a Youth Religious Emblem Recognition Ceremony, and Adult Recognition Ceremony. We are able to accomplish these events, because of the many dedicated leaders that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program.
The Oklahoma City Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting encourages Catholic youth and adult membership in Boy Scout, Girl Scout, and Camp Fire USA programs. The Committee will encourage parishes to become sponsoring institutions for these organizations. The Committee also promotes the Religious Awards available through these organizations as a current and viable form of youth ministry that can enhance the faith life of Catholic youth. The Committee will encourage youth and adults to actively practice their Catholic faith in their parish church by regular attendance at Mass, participation in religious education, and youth group activities offered by their parish and the Archdiocesan Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, and through their Scouting and Camp Fire USA programs.
