National Catholic Committee for Girl Scouts and Camp Fire
The Catholic religious recognition programs administered by the National Catholic Committee for Girl Scouts and Camp Fire (NCCGSCF), under the auspices of the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM), allow young people to explore and become more involved in their Catholic faith. These programs are designed to support and complement the catechetical efforts of Catholic parishes and schools.
