Council DisAbilities Awareness Committee (CDAC)
To provide individuals with special needs opportunities to participate in the Boy Scouts of America all-inclusive Scouting Program.
The Council Committee on DisAbilities Awareness seeks to:
- Raise awareness to our Units and thereby create opportunities for inclusion of individuals with special needs
- Provide support, resources and education to Scouts, parents and leaders.
Registering Your Scout with disAbilities in the BSA Program
We believe that all Scouts need to have the greatest opportunity for participation, inclusion and advancement in our program. Our program for Scouts with disAbilities is directed at helping Unit Leaders, Scouts and parents develop an awareness of encouraging the inclusion of Scouts with disAbilities. The BSA has specific accommodations designed to allow each Scout to realize his full potential, which can be found in the Advancement section of this page. It is important to register your Scout with Special Needs "Beyond the Age of Eligibility" when he first registers as a Boy Scout.
