International Scouting 0 K. Phipps    Passport DC Embassy Days & Youth Ambassador Program   Greetings, Scouters!   In a chance meeting at the Marriott Service Center -- you know how that goes -- a member of the International Committee mentioned this program to me, so I feel compelled to help publicize it. This is an experience that is totally unique to the NCAC area. -- nowhere else in the country do Scouts have this kind of ready access to international embassies. Both of these items are available elsewhere on the NCAC website -- I just wanted to present it to our district, on one page.   1) Passport DC Embassy Days, Saturday, May 2 & May 9, 2015, 10AM - 4PM, $10 for passport & patch Once a year the diplomatic community from around the world throws open the doors of the various Embassies, Consulates and Missions for the public at large to stop in and visit. The "Embassy Days" are coordinated by Passport DC and take place on Saturday May 2nd and May 9th. There is no associated cost and no need to register. Activities range from informal tours of the grounds, to local food, music and culture. It's a great family event and wonderful for Scouts looking to get a little international flavor. Participating nations on May 2nd span the world while European nations make up the bulk of the May 9th participants. For a full list of which nations are taking part, a map of the city and more information as to specific activities, check here, or visit the Passport DC website here.   2) Youth Ambassador Program Run by the International Committee, Scouts aged 14-20 can become Youth Ambassadors, representing BSA on the International level. If you have Scouts interested in exploring the worldwide Scout movement, they may want to look into this. This might also be a great forum for those Scouts who have lived overseas or may be moving overseas. A slideshow is available here.   3) International Awards There are a number of awards available for Scouts and Scouters who bring the international flavor to Scouting. They're on, obviously, but also conveniently listed on the International Committee's homepage.

Certificates of Insurance 0 R. Davidson Hello Scouters!   For many of you this will be routine, but for some this is new.   Many of your units have meetings at locations that require a Certificate of Insurance.  All COI’s run from March 1st to March 1st and therefore are set to expire at the end of the month.   We now have approval to begin printing new COIs for 2015 – 2016.  If you need a COI please fill out the attached request form and get it back to me.   A few notes – If the event is a regular event such as a Den Meeting please write, weekly Den Meetings under dates Your Charter Organization does not require nor will they get a COI.  Their insurance coverage is done through their Annual Agreement Contract.  I can’t give them a COI because that doesn’t apply to them as a Charter Organization. The certificate holder is the organization requesting the certificate.    Please let me know if you have any questions!   Thanks for all that you do!   Wes Haynes  |   Western Shore and Zekiah District Director BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA National Capital Area Council

Now Hiring Camp Staff Counselors 0 Z. District Hello! Growing up in Scouting the most defining part of my teenage years were working at camp staff out at Goshen.  It refined my leadership and built up my confidence, independence, work ethic, and teaching skills.  Everything I am today has been influenced and made better because of the experiences I had on camp staff.  It better prepared me for collage, the work force, and to be a Volunteer Fire Fighter.  I never would have stayed in Scouting, become an Eagle Scout, or gone to work for the Boy Scouts without this experience. From a Troop point of you the best a unit can do for a camp and make it better is to take ownership and provide your Scouts the opportunity for the experience of a life time. Please share and promote the attached flier for your Scouts and Venturers who are at least 15.     Wes Haynes  |   Western Shore and Zekiah District DirectorBOY SCOUTS OF AMERICANational Capital Area CouncilMarriott Scout Service Center9190 Rockville PikeBethesda, MD 20814C 301-943-8376
