Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing information with you around the upcoming Summer of Service. The Summer of Service is a national initiative designed to encourage our movement to “give back” at a time when a spirit of community service is needed more than ever.
As we have throughout our history, Scouting families have answered the call to work together in service of the greater good. From public health drives…to caring for the environment…to assisting neighbors in need…Scouts have always been a force for positivity and goodness in our communities. Now more than ever, our world needs that Scouting spirit once again. Let’s step up! Let’s answer the call to put “service beyond self” to make a positive impact in our neighborhoods and communities throughout the summer.
The Summer of Service is a broad initiative that allows families maximum flexibility in deciding the type of service that best fits their circumstances. From big projects to small spur-the moment opportunities, we are asking participants to give back in some way and then tell us about it. Based on the honor system, participants will be able to download printable certificates and order a special recognition patch. All handled through the Summer of Service website, there will be no cumbersome forms or daunting lists of requirements. The important part is to activate on the mindset of serving others.

We rely on the generosity of our donors to ensure we can deliver on our promise to make the DC Metro region a better place. That’s why we are kicking off NCAC’s Summer of Service with a Day of Giving on June 10th. NCAC is in the business of making our communities stronger by serving more than 36,000 families and helping instill in our young people the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. We want every donor to have the opportunity to financially invest in the lives of young people, and our communities. We are inviting you to help us provide this program that they love.
