The La Crosse Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting is a committee affiliated with the Diocese of La Crosse Youth Ministry serving the Chippewa Valley, Gateway Area and Samoset Councils of the Boy Scouts of America. The Committee is dedicated to promoting “Duty to God” at each level of Scouting. We are affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting® (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America.

Each year the (DCCS) holds several events to promote Catholic Scouting. These events include a Boy Scout Religious Encounter, Scouter Development, Religious Emblems Counselor Training, and a Youth Religious Emblem Recognition Ceremony. We are able to accomplish these events, because of the many dedicated leaders that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program.
