Navigators is an all gender, secular scouting movement that welcomes all people — children and adults, no matter what gender, race, lifestyle, ability, religious or lack of religious belief.

The UUCPA Navigators group meet 1st and 3rd Sundays at 11 am at
Past activities: indoor skydiving, cooking over the fire, zip lines, drones, make your own pizza, make your own jam, camping, starting fires without matches, fishing, archery, hikes, geocaching, rock climbing, Maker Faire, and white water rafting.
Generally, we do ages 7 and up. Right now our oldest kids are 13.

Competition can be great, but so are breaks to practice a different way of being
Age, gender, ability diversity
Learning how to work together with people of different abilities and interests
Groups make family time more fun
Being active and getting into nature
Some interaction with risk
Interaction with small risks (minor burns and cuts) makes for wiser kids
Preparation for a post-apocalyptic zombie-filled world
Just in case…
All are welcome!
