Policy: Scouting as Youth Ministry


All adult leaders in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in troops or packs affiliated with a Catholic parish or school in the Diocese of Wilmington must meet all requirements of adult leaders as outlined in Section Three (Safe Environment) of For the Sake of God’s Children. Clearance by BSA or GSUSA does not supersede or replace the requirements by the Diocese of Wilmington.0


If there are scouting programs in a parish, a representative from scouting must serve on the Youth Ministry Leadership Committee.0


Religious Recognition medals and patches may only be purchased and conferred by the diocesan authorized administrators upon verification of program completion and award application.0
