As a Navigator, I promise to do my best to create a world free of prejudice and ignorance.
To treat people of every race, creed, lifestyle and ability with dignity and respect.
To strengthen my body and improve my mind to reach my full potential.
To protect our planet and preserve our freedom.

NoVES Navigator Activities

Check out our video of activities for 2017!

NoVES Navigators (Chapter 99) have been an active troop since summer of 2015. We have three Scout leaders and plan an event every month during the school year. The age range for our Navigators is first through sixth grade and currently about 20 Scouts are enrolled in our chapter.

We earned 6 badges our first year/18 months 2015-2016 and  9 badges in 2017.  Our last badge ceremony was in January 2018.  We are undertaking a huge STEM inspired project in the Spring of 2018.  We are learning about buoyancy, structural integrity, rowing and teamwork as we prepare to enter the Cardboard Boat Regatta at Lake Accotink in Fairfax this June!
