2013 ANNUAL REPORT BEGIN YOUR ADVENTURE

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scout Mission The vision of NCAC is to accomplish the mission of the BSA in such an exemplary manner as to be recognized by our public as the premier youth organization in the communities we serve and by other councils and the National Council as second to none in all our endeavors.

NCAC Vision

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Oath

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

Scout Law

This was a challenging year for Scouting, but because of friends like you we have once again been successful in delivering the premier youth leadership development program in the metro D.C. area. Our reach now extends beyond the metro lines. In 2013 our Council merged with the U.S. Virgin Islands Council to provide better service and new opportunities to the young people of the island communities. Plans are already underway for a camp on two of the three islands next summer and Scouting membership on the islands is growing rapidly. Looking ahead to 2014, our focus is on helping Scouts be Prepared. For Learning. Young people learn much more in Scouting than tying knots; they develop skills and tools to help them succeed in school and in life. Scouting provides a beneficial diversion that gives young people real-world experience, reinforcing what they learn in the classroom. As Lord Baden-Powell said, “We are not a club or a Sunday School class, but a school of the woods.” To fulfill that vision, NCAC has launched a new STEM program that focuses on showing youth how much fun

and adventure can be found in science and math. The cornerstones of the program are the General Dynamics STEM Lab at Camp William B. Snyder and also our new STEM Van; a mobile classroom and discovery laboratory that brings the program to troop meetings, schools and other community activities. We have also expanded the scope of Exploring, our career exploration program. Historically, Exploring has been open to high-school aged young men and women. This fall, NCAC introduced new Explorer Clubs for middle school students as well. Most importantly, the new year gives us another opportunity to help a new generation of young people join Scouting, grow as individuals and leaders, and learn to be prepared. Prepared for adventure. Prepared for learning. Prepared. For Life. Yours in Scouting, Hugh Redd, Les Baron, Ed Yarbrough

Message from the Key Three NCAC’s number one priority is providing a safe environment for our youth members.

Moving into Scouting’s second century, NCAC is focused on the future. The Council has pledged to:

In 2013, 99% of top unit leaders had completed Youth Protection Training within the past two years.

• Involve more youth in Scouting; • Ensure NCAC is fiscally sound both now and for the future; • Provide quality leadership matched to the communities we serve and the programs we deliver; • Exceed the expectations of National Boy Scouts of America and our local stakeholders;

NCAC continues to lead the country in attendance at national BSA High Adventure Bases. NCAC sent more Scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier and Florida Sea Base than any other council, and more than 1,874 local Scouts participated in some form of high adventure activity with their unit or at Lenhok’sin High Adventure at Goshen Scout Reservation. 2013 National Jamboree More than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from around the world came to the grand opening of the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia – BSA’s newest national high adventure base, including 562 Scouts and 62 leaders from NCAC. Additionally, 226 NCAC members served on event staff, making our Council contingent one of the largest in all of Scouting.

Day camp is the first camping experience for many Cub Scouts. In 2013, NCAC ran 25 regional day camps with a total attendance of 4,125 youth. The theme for the summer was “Wild Western Adventure.� In addition to such favorite day camp activities as shooting sports, nature study, Scout skills, arts & crafts, swimming, fishing and other outdoor skills, Cub Scouts had the opportunity to build and play banjos, decorate cavalry tents, pan for gold and watch a professional bull rider demonstrate rope skills. Each NCAC day camp has a fully trained staff and is locally inspected and certified for operation. Day Camps are located throughout the Council so that every youth has an opportunity to attend near their own community.

Day Camp Best decision this week: Put 3 Webelos Scouts in charge of counting 18-person Pack as we move through Cub Scout Day Camp @krobertory

4,125 Cub Scouts attended day camp

Now in its seventh year, 325-acre Camp William B. Snyder in Haymarket, VA, continued offering programs for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers. The camp was host to a wide range of events in 2013, including weekend camping, district and Order of the Arrow activities, and councilwide trainings. Camp Snyder was also a popular venue for community events, with the Marriott Dining Hall hosting weddings, birthday parties and other receptions. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also hosted two weeklong programs for 950 of their young women. 1,593 Scouts came to Camp Snyder this summer, where the theme was Wild West. The camp staff delivered a handson, physically active and fun program that received excellent parent evaluations. Special thanks to the 75 Deloitte employees who came for a day of volunteer service, completing several key work projects to get camp ready for the summer.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia, Goshen Scout Reservation covers more than 4,000 acres, including 450-acre Lake Merriweather and contains six independent camps: PMI and Ross for Webelos Scouts; Bowman, Marriott, and Olmsted for Boy Scouts and Venturers; and Lenhok’sin High Adventure Base. In 2013, 7,579 campers came to Goshen, earning more than 21,000 merit badges. Two world-class ski boats were purchased for use in the older Scout programs, and two water trampolines were installed at Camps Ross and PMI that proved to be extremely popular all summer long. Goshen also became one of the first camps in the country to offer Venturing advancement when Camp Bowman introduced its new Venturing program with 50 Venturers participating this summer.

More than 1,100 leaders received in-depth position-specific training at Council events, including: • Pow Wow, a day-long training for Cub Scout leaders focused on demystifying pack, den and committee meetings so they are more fun and educational. More than 400 Cub Scout leaders attended Pow Wow in 2013. • University of Scouting, a supplemental training for leaders in all program areas and for all experience levels. • National Youth Leadership Training, a program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. NCAC conducted three NYLT courses in 2013, training 165 youth. • Wood Badge, an advanced leadership training course for leaders at all levels of Scouting. NCAC conducted two Wood Badge courses in 2013, training 97 leaders, including a “Sunday friendly” course with 48 participants.

Scouts from 503 units participated in the annual popcorn sale, developing valuable life skills such as salesmanship, relationship building, entrepreneurship and goal setting while earning their way to summer camp and providing financial support for their unit’s activities. The sale raised a total of $3.7 million, establishing NCAC as one of the three top-selling councils in the country. NCAC Scouts also participated again in the Support Our Troops program, sending popcorn and other treats to our country’s active service members. 70% of the money raised by the popcorn sale stays local, providing direct support to unit programs and the Council.

NCAC’s Venturing Officer’s Association (VOA) started in 2011 with the vision of being the voice of Venturing. The VOA has done just that, and in 2013 qualified for the Council Standards of Venturing Excellence (CSVE) Award for a second time. The VOA planned and participated in several events throughout the year, including the June Awards Picnic, University of Scouting and Venturers Take Over DC, a program that offered Venturers an opportunity to earn their faith’s religious emblems. Local Venturers also attended the Aspire training in October, which brought together youth from across Area 6 of the Northeast Region, which includes Delaware, eastern Maryland, southern Pennsylvania, northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. New crews have formed, focused on many unique areas of interest, including recreation, high adventure and sailing.

Exploring is a career education program for young men and women ages 14-20. In 2013, NCAC served 1,243 Explorers in 56 posts. Exploring provides positive, meaningful, real-world career experiences and leadership opportunities for young adults in their field of interest, and helps them mature into responsible and caring adults. Local Explorer posts represent a wide range of career interests, including: • Information Technology; • Law Enforcement; • Healthcare; • Broadcast Journalism; • Firefighting and Rescue; and • Automotive Engineering. This fall, NCAC introduced the new Middle School Explorer Clubs, which open the program to youth in 6-8th grades. The first club formed in Stafford, Virginia, with more than 70 members, and was soon joined by three STEM-focused clubs in Prince George’s County.

In 2013, NCAC launched a local STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) initiative. Using the existing advancement program as well as two new BSA awards – NOVA and SUPERNOVA – the Council is helping young people get excited about and engaged in these essential educational and vocational fields that will support their future success. To support the program, NCAC hired a full-time STEM Coordinator, opened the General Dynamics STEM Lab at Camp William B. Snyder, and introduced the STEM Van, a mobile classroom and discovery lab that brings STEM programming to local schools and Scouting events.

STEM Scouts used the scientific method to describe different classes of lever.

A large part of NCAC’s funding comes from the annual Friends of Scouting (FOS) campaign, which invites the Scouting families, volunteers, businesses and individuals in the communities served by the Council to help support the program. The official kickoff of the 2013 campaign took place in December, 2012, with a Council-wide event featuring legendary former Redskins player Dave Butz.

The 2013 FOS campaign raised more than $1.75 million to support the youth of Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. For every $1 donated to Friends of Scouting, local Scouts performed $5.75 in community service – a 575% return on your investment in local youth!
