Since 1999, the Giza Sea Scout Association and Misr Baladna has been offering the Egyptian youth a chance to experience interaction with the international youth of their age, by participating in international scout camps in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. As well, visiting scout troops after the camp has been very attractive to allow the scouts to know other cultures and see other places, which enhances their experience and builds their self-confidence and independence.
Successful trips have spurred us forward to continue further. This year we have two proposed trips in the summer, in which boys and girls who are active in our programs and are willing to travel may get the chance to do so. There will be separate arrangements and interviews when the time comes.
In addition to its annual summer trip, Misr Baladna has regular scout meetings for each age group and organizes trips inside Egypt to allow them to discover their country. Specific programs are also implemented in some schools; the most significant of them are listed below:
- Manor House Language Schools
- Dar El Tarbiah Language Schools
- Dover American International School
- Misr Language Schools (MLS)
- Al Bashaer International School
- The Egyptian British International School (EBIS)
- Brilliance International Schools
- Green Heights International School
- Heritage International School
- Canadian International School of Egypt (CISE)
- New Horizon International School
- Al Alsson School
In some cases we have full cooperation with schools in preparing programs that are fit for the school and students through providing trainers as well as attractive activities. Our programs are flexible, and can be performed inside the school or outside in agreed upon venues. The programs vary from weekly (or bi-weekly) activities to 1 or more day trips in Cairo and all over Egypt. We hope we to offer the students a full view of what scouting is all about.
We attend a lot of events held inside the above stated schools and highest ranked Egyptian clubs in order to spread the spirit of the scouting inside these organizations to attract the students to live this experience and join our activities.
