Streetsboro – Navigators USA, a co-ed, youth-adventure organization committed to opening minds and creativity through direct contact with nature, announces the formation of a new chapter in Streetsboro, Ohio. Robin Bossert, Executive Director, Navigators USA, welcomed the new chapter in an email sent to the founding committee members. “Pack your backpacks!  You can now go camping as Navigator Chapter 40 Streetsboro! Welcome to our family of spirited, open-minded Americans who want to build community in all the varieties that make this country strong!”

Navigators USA provides a quality scouting experience which is available to all children and youths, ages 7 – 19, and their families, regardless of gender, race, religion, economic status, sexual orientation and/or social background.  The program, comprised of separate Junior and Senior Navigators components, emphasizes the importance of attributes such as camaraderie, loyalty, friendship, cooperation, and appreciation for nature, both within the membership of the local Chapters and in their communities. Navigators USA was founded in 2003 by a group of volunteers, and was sponsored by The All Souls Unitarian Church in New York City.

The founding committee of the Streetsboro Chapter, comprised of Bill Butt of Streetsboro, Michelle and Andrew Bores of Streetsboro, and Beth and Joe Kuemerle of Cuyahoga Falls would like to extend an invitation to all interested families in Portage County and other nearby communities to attend an informational meeting to be held at the Camelot Village Community Center, 1425 Frost Road, Streetsboro, OH on Friday March 1, 2013. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. Activities and entertainment will be available for the younger children and light refreshments will be served to all attending.
