DCCS Devotional Program for Youth

Catholic Scouts attending a week of summer camp have an excellent opportunity to reflect on the ways in which Scouting ought to reinforce their faith.  The DCCS has developed a devotional program to facilitate these reflections.  Using this program as a guide, Scouts can meet with a group of friends and a mature Catholic mentor to pray daily and renew their commitment to live in accordance with God’s will.
