The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP) is to help councils elevate camps to new levels of excellence in delivering Scouting’s promise to youth.
Councils will engage in a rigorous review of camps and properties, continuous improvement, and correction or elimination of substandard practices.
The NCAP achieves this purpose through the following:
- National camp standards
- Application and Authorization to Operate review
- Camp Strategic Analysis
- Continuous Camp Improvement Program
- Annual camp assessment process
- Only camps that successfully complete all five aspects of the NCAP are BSA accredited camps.
You are invited to participate in the National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP) training: Saturday, May 5th, from 8 am to 3 pm in Bozeman, MT. It is being held at the Hope Lutheran Church, 2152 Graf St, Billings, Montana.
This training will certify you to be a visitation team member for visitation of Scout Camps in Area Two (Colorado, Western South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho).
This training also prepares and enables Scouters in Montana to inspect our own camps for pre and post inspections.
Of particular need, are those with electrical, carpentry and plumbing knowledge and experience.
