The purpose of the Austin Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting (DCCS) is to provide Catholic Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and members of other similar organizations continued education in the Catholic Faith and support the growth of Catholic scouting units in these organizations.

Youth are invited to earn age-appropriate Religious Emblems by completing a formation program including a workbook. Upon completion of the program they are invited to attend a Recognition Mass and receive their medal from Bishop Joe Vasquez.

We also have a variety of Religious Activities including RetreatsRosary Patches and the Footsteps of the Saints programs that youth (scouts/non-scouts, catholic/non-catholic) throughout the year.

Leaders For the safety of our children, all volunteers in the Diocese of Austin are required to attend an Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) workshop and complete an online volunteer application and background check.  This is in addition to the training required by your girls/boys scouting organization.  All scouts in 7th grade and above who seek to earn their religious emblem must work with a trained religious emblem counselor.  To complete this training, a counselor must attend a retreat.  There they will receive their Religious Emblem Counselor (REC) training and their Lay Apostolate Formation (LAF) training.
