Catholic Committee on Scouting (CCoS)
Our Mission: The Catholic Committee on Scouting offers a variety of activities to benefit Scouts of the Catholic faith in the National Capital Area Council. The Catholic Committee on Scouting is a church committee of concerned Catholic lay people and clergy who see as their mission the constructive use of the program of the Boy Scouts of America as a viable form of youth ministry with the Catholic youth of our nation. The committee, which is advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, seeks to sustain and strengthen the relationship between BSA and the Catholic Church in the United States.
