Youth Award Retreats
Each year, our Archdiocese holds retreats for the scouts. The day will reinforce each child's faith, as nurtured by their respective scouting program. We will grow in our Catholic Christian beliefs by listening, sharing, praying, singing, and playing. The day's activities are designed to jump start a scout's endeavors in working toward one of the CCOS awards.
St. George Trek
The 2019 St George Trek has been cancelled due to the fires that Philmont experienced the summer of 2018. It has been rescheduled for July 2020.
Light from a grotto in Bethlehem has been carried all the way to Albuquerque and will be available at various locations. Please see the flyer for times and locations.
Important Notice - Youth Protection
The Archdiocese has published an amended policy which all Cub Scout and Boy Scout units chartered within the Archdiocese must follow. This policy contains minimum standards which must be followed for all overnight activities that include youth under the age of 13, as well as guidelines for protecting all youth.
Help Support CCOS!
Each year the Archdiocese of Santa Fe Catholic Committee on Scouting holds several events to promote Scouts growing in their Catholic Faith.
We can accomplish these events because of the many dedicated leaders that donate their time and energy to providing a quality program. Please see below on how you can help support our youth!
