Are you Involved in Scouting?
The Norwich University Scouting Association is a fellowship of men and women who have achieved Eagle Scout, Silver Award or Gold Award rank and/or those individuals who have been involved with or in support of the Scouting movement. This group is dedicated to continued service to Norwich University and the surrounding community, as it helps to support others joining the ranks of Boy Scout, Girl Scout, Cub Scout and Venturing programs.
With NUSA’s main priority of serving others, the organization assists at local scouting events, visits with local troops when possible, and partners with other agencies to provide on and off-campus events such as Merit Badge events, Flag Etiquette trainings, Scouting Camporees and large-scale days of service. A natural ally with the Explorer Post programs, NUSA has also helped to establish a Law Enforcement Explorer Post through the Center for Civic Engagement for eligible students.
Benefits of Being Involved:
Through NUSA, participants can develop time management, project management, volunteer coordinator, leadership, and team-building skills. Working with local scouting organizations also helps to develop students’ networking skills, as well as to advance their rank within their respective organizations.
- Green Bar – those who serve as a club officer.
- Eagle/Silver/Gold Member – for those who obtained their respective highest rank within one of the many scouting organizations.
- Supporter – any member who wishes to support scouting ideals and teaching who may or may not have been directly involved in scouting.
NUSA plans to annually host a Camporee for local scouting troops that desire to improve their leadership skills, while featuring many of the opportunities Norwich has to offer. The Camporee is a weekend camping event designed to allow participants to complete advancement requirements and merit badges while experiencing and learning more about Norwich.
