Parents - Getting Started

The major awards available for Scouts are:
  • Girls in Scouting:
  • Boys in Scouting:
  • Additional religious faith development programs for Catholic Scouts: -- These are additional faith-development activities offered by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting. Please note that these activities do not quality for BSA Religious Emblems and the cost for these programs (usually just a few dollars) is paid by the families - not the parishes. A check for the amount listed below must be submitted to the Committee with the application for recognition.
Scouts working on the Marian Medal and Spirit Alive awards and the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII emblems must work with a counselor approved by the Catholic Committee on Scouting. Contact Curtis O'Connell to find a counselor.

Religious Awards Application Process
Once all the work for the award is complete (including required signatures from Scout leaders and Parish representatives), submit the entire completed workbook to the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting. This may be done by:
  • Giving the entire completed workbook to a parish representative of the Catholic Committee on Scouting. (See the list of parish contacts)
  • Mailing the entire completed workbook to:  Catholic Committee on Scouting, 6145 Moorfield Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80919-4802
Once the program is completed and approved, your parish will be billed for the cost of the award.

The usual deadline for submission of completed workbooks is the first Wednesday of January.


Annual Religious Awards Retreat

The Catholic Committee on Scouting holds an annual retreat to help Scouts work on their religious awards. The awards are not completed at the retreat but the retreat gives the Scouts an opportunity to work on their award in a group with other Scouts.  Attendance at the retreat is required for Scouts working on the Marian Medal and Spirit Alive awards and the Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII emblems.
