Oklahoma City Archdiocesan Catholic Community on Scouting


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.

Girl Scouts Campfire

The National Catholic Committee on Scouting has had the responsibility for more than 55 years to promote and guide cooperative contacts between the authorities of the Catholic Church and the BSA. The Scouting program is recognized as an integral part of the total youth ministry at the diocesan level. Each archdiocese and diocese has a Catholic Committee on Scouting, and approximately 360 BSA local councils have their own committees.
