What We Do
The Joliet Diocese Catholic Committee on Scouting (JDCCS) gives give guidance, direction, leadership, and vitality in the spiritual phase of scouting to all Catholic scouts and scouters in the Diocese, whether or not their units are parish supported.
The JDCCS serves American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts of America, Camp Fire USA, Girl Scouts USA, and other Catholic youth groups. The committee is dedicated to promoting 'Duty to God' at each level of Scouting. Members serve under the authority of the Diocese of Joliet Office of Christian Formation. We are affiliated with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting, (NCCS), an advisory to the Boy Scouts of America, and associated with the National Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and Camp Fire, (NCCGSCF), and the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, (NFCYM).
