Catholic Committee


The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Committee on Scouting (ACCoS) is a committee of Catholic lay people that promotes the mission of Scouting is Youth Ministry.  They accomplish this by reinforcing the twelfth point of the Scout Law of A Scout is Reverent throughout the local Boy Scouts of America councils and Archdiocesan youth groups.

The committee works with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Office of Youth Evangelization and Discipleship to strengthen the presence of the Catholic faith in Scouting. The Committee serves the following councils of the Boy Scouts of America: Dan Beard, Miami Valley, Tecumseh, Black Swamp, and Simon Kenton.

Do you have questions about Catholic Religious Emblems for Scouts and Venturers?

The Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is here to help. The Committee is available as a resource to help you add “A Scout is Reverent” to your Scouting programs, specifically for your Roman Catholic Scouts and Venturers.

Catholic Religious Emblems programs are available for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and Venture Scouts, and the Committee can help you implement these programs in your Units.
