The committee meets at St. Joseph's in Cupertino, Stevens Creek and De Anza Blvd., 7:30pm - on the fourth Monday of January, March, May, August, and October.
Welcome to our homepage! We are a committee of the Youth and Young Adult Ministry office of the Diocese of San Jose. We support and promote Catholic youth ministry in the Boy Scout, Girl Scout and Camp Fire programs. We primarily serve the scouting and camp fire units in the Santa Clara county. Our group organizes the annual Catholic awards recognition ceremony, and co-sponsors the annual Retreat-O-Ree.
The values taught in Scouting and Camp Fire are the same found in the Gospels. Scouting is an effective way to help Catholic youths to do their duty to God and to their country. Scouting and Camp Fire build character and teaches devotion to God in an environment that provides wholesome fun under the guidance of strong adult role models. The scouting and Camp Fire programs provides a wonderful channel to involve youth in the life of Catholic parishes.
Young people experience Scouting and Camp Fire as a growth into personal maturity and social responsibility. They learn to assume their role in life with a high degree of commitment, and to care for others who are less fortunate. They develop a strong desire to build a culture of goodwill, respect for the environment, acceptance of duties, including the most fundamental of all duties - love of God and obedience to His will.
