Northern Virginia Ethical Society (NoVES)



Moral Compass

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

NoVES Navigators (Chapter 99) have been active 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 are on target to earn 9 badges this year 2017.  Our last badge ceremony was in January 2017 and our 2nd badge ceremony  is planned for Jan 2018.

Badges awarded Jan 2017 include: 

  • Map Reading
  • Safety
  • Climbing
  • Hikes
  • Charity & Volunteering
  • Skating

Possible Badges to be awarded January 2018:

  • Camping
  • Water Conservation
  • Moral Compass
  • Sewing
  • Knots
  • Minecraft
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Space
  • Performing Arts

This Fall we are having a Rocket Competition and finishing any loose ends on the 9 badges listed above. We will also begin preparing for our Rafting Badge that will be earned at the Cardboard Boat Regatta in June 2018.  We have a crew of 11 sailors who will be learning to row as a team, learn the science of buoyancy and design and build 2 cardboard boats to enter into the Regatta at Lake Accotink.  Each boat should hold up to 6 Scouts and be able to stay afloat!
