The Long Beach Area Council Catholic Committee on Scouting (LBACCCS) exists to provide resources and guidance to those youth and families looking to learn about their faith.

From Tiger Scouts to Venture Scouts and even adult Scouters, there are Catholic religious emblems programs which can be earned. For Catholic Scouts these awards provide a fantastic opportunity to learn about “duty to God” and to share with the local Scouting Catholic community.
