What is CCSI?


Catholic Scout leaders for both boys and girls, devoted to Scouts embracing their faith.


Scouts of all ages, promise service and reverence to God in their promises.  These values strengthen youth character in their family, community, and parish.

We organize an annual Catholic Scout retreat and Catholic religious awards programs; make arrangements for priests to conduct mass during summer camp; support Scout Sunday efforts in parishes, Safe and Sacred training for adults, and religious emblems counselor training.


As an adult Scouter, you have the responsibility to ensure every Catholic Scout in your home unit is afforded the opportunity to grow in their faith through the participation in a religious awards program and Catholic Scout retreats. 


All Scout units should have at least one leader trained as a religious emblems counselor.
