Connected through 174 National Scout Organizations, this movement delivers quality Scouting programs, events and initiatives locally and internationally.

Capitol Area Council International Committee The International committee relies on a dynamic, dedicated, and diverse group of volunteers to bring an international experience to the Scouts in the Capitol Area Council. Everyone has something to contribute to the group’s diversity. The International Committee is always looking for people interested in expanding their knowledge about a culture other than their own. Whether you have an international experience to share, or simply want to learn more about international Scouting, we could use your participation. The focus of the international committee is to raise awareness for the worldwide movement of Scouting through:

• Unit activities

• Presentations and displays at council and district events

• Facilitating contacts with foreign Scouts and Scouters

• Broadcasting information on international Scouting happenings

• Offering support and resources for CAC Scouts and Scouters who are interested in participating in International Scouting. Meetings are generally held the fourth Sunday of the month at 4:00 pm via Zoom
