I'm proud to present our brand-new for 2012 Navigators Chapter 13 Blog! Come here to see what our scout group has been up to and what we'll be doing next.
For those of you new to the group, Navigators Chapter 13 is one of the newest chapters of Navigators USA, a brand-new scouting group started right here in NYC. For more information about Navigators USA, check them out on the web at http://navigatorsusa.ning.com/. Navigators is a non-denominational, co-educational religiously tolerant scout group.
One reason for starting a Navigators chapter is to combat what's sometimes called nature-deficit disorder: the unmet need of today's youth to get outside. For more on that, take a look at Last Child in the Woods . Another reason is to get kids away from the video games and into some real-life camaraderie through group activities, including service activities.
I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures. If you'd like to learn more, feel free to email me or commenting on the blog.
