Boston Catholic Scouting




Boston Catholic Committee on Scouting

Scouting is a form of youth ministry that promotes duty to God and country. Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing, Brownies, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls and more provide opportunities for our Catholic youth to learn more about their faith by way of community, religious emblems and awards, retreats and activities.

The Boston Catholic Committee for Scouting partners with Family Life & Ecclesial Movements, a division of the Secretariat for Evangelization and Discipleship, for the Archdiocese of Boston.  

To order religious emblems or awards, contact: Emily Elliott, Family Life Consultant and Scouting Liaison at the
Archdiocese of Boston at 617.746.5756 or by emailing
