About Us

The purpose of the Diocese of Dallas Catholic Committee on Scouting (DDCCS) is to give guidance, vitality, and leadership in the spiritual phase of Scouting to all Catholic scouts and scouters of the diocese. The committee endeavors to make the entire Scouting program available to increasing numbers of youth in parish units and in units operated by Catholic organizations. The agenda of the Catholic committee supplements the program of the Boy Scouts of America, with special instructions and activities, in the spiritual phase of Scouting as it relates to Catholics.

Each year the Committee holds several events to promote Catholic Scouting. These events include a Boy Scout Religious Retreat, Cub Scout Retreat, Youth Religious Emblem Recognition Ceremony, Religious Emblems Counselor Training, and Adult Recognition Dinner. We are able to accomplish these events because of the many dedicated volunteers that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program.

The Diocese of Dallas Catholic Committee on Scouting serves portions of Circle 10 Council and the NeTseO Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Committee promotes Duty to God at each level of Scouting. We're affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, and Region 10 of the NCCS.
