Trained Leaders are critical for a successful Scouting program. Recently our District Training volunteers trained adult leaders from Occoquan District as well as other Districts in the NCAC. Here are some pictures of these leaders learning and demonstrating their skills!

NCAC Scouting Challenge


The NCAC Scouting Challenge began 2012, and runs on a yearly basis through Dec 31, 2015.

The Challenge consists of four separate challenges; specifically:


Challenge 1: I’m Prepared

Challenge 2: I’m Earth-Friendly

Challenge 3: I’m Fit

Challenge 4: I’m Connected

Each of the four challenges will be highlighted and emphasized during one quarter of the year, yet will be available for accomplishment at any time during the year.

Each challenge can be tackled by a unit as a whole or by an individual Scout. [When filling out completion sheets, please annotate the month and the year completed to the right of each requirement as it is completed; i.e., …05/12.]

Once a Challenge level is completed, turn it in to your unit Advancement Chairperson, who will,
in turn, send it electronically, or hard-copy hand-deliver, to their District Advancement & Recognition Committee Chairperson for approval and recording/tracking.

The District Advancement & Recognition Committee Chairperson will send the Scout a certificate (provided by Council) stating the Scout is entitled to purchase a special patch (part of a larger five-piece patch) from the front desk at the Marriott Scout Service Center.


The center patch is available for purchase without a certificate. Each of the other four patch segments can only be purchased upon presenting a certificate from district.


The patch for each level of challenge will be outlined in a different color to highlight when a challenge was completed; hence, each of the four challenges may be completed at each level of Scouting.

Any Scout who earns the right to wear all four patches will also receive a special neck ribbon with medal, to be presented by the NCAC Program Impact department.

Exceptions to any of the above policy must be coordinated with the Program Impact department.

Eagle Scout Project

Recently Life Scout Ryan J from Troop 1390 organized and led volunteers to complete a project at Quantico National Cemetery. Volunteers cleaned more than 600 headstones of the hero's buried at QNC. The project was developed after a family visiting their loved-one found the headstone covered in algae, dirt and debris.




Eagle Scout Project

 

 

Recently Life Scout Jack D from Troop 1390 organized and lead volunteers to complete a Tree Preservation Service Project at Lakeridge Park. The Eagle Project's goals was to wrap the trees to prevent beavers from damaging the trees. Just one beaver cuts down an average 200 trees a year. This project will save trees and preserve our outdoors.
