The National Catholic Committee on Scouting® offers several opportunities to become trained on its programs. During the summer, Scouting in the Catholic Church is offered at Philmont Training Center in Cimarron, NM as part of BSA Relationships Week. The conference brings together religious and lay participants with varying experience in Scouting and the Catholic faith. The goal of the conference is to help the participants understand how Scouting is a Youth Ministry and how to use the information in their dioceses* when talking with Scouters, priests, and youth ministers.
National training is being delivered at the region level through regional training conferences. These conferences extend the training previously provided only at the Biennial Conference. A regional training may be planned at the end of each NCCS Annual Meeting in addition to those held at regional meetings.
