Start a Scouting Chapter

Navigators USA gives you the freedom to run your Chapter the way you see fit. To create a purpose-driven, fun, and sustainable enterprise, we recommend, not following the typical drop-off program. Building a nature-oriented community takes all ages, all genders working together. This should be as much for the adults as it is for the children.

Why Start a Scouting Chapter?

It is important that children receive stimulating and formative experiences to develop into mature, courageous, and resilient individuals able to thrive in a complex world.

By starting a new Scout Chapter, children of different regions and diverse backgrounds learn new life skills and the Navigator’s Moral Compas, becoming competent to face any hardship in life.

How to start a New Scouting Chapter

It is essential to have at least two leaders and five children to start a new Chapter. The family model involves all parents in all activities, which is the key to maintaining a vibrant, sustainable scouting chapter. Although convincing people not to utilize a drop-off program may offer challenges, the benefits are evident once they are on board.
