From 1919 to 1939 an important tradition had existed at Camp Gifford (the council camp prior to Camp Cedars), called the Tribe of Nani-Ba-Zhu. This tradition has been renewed at Camp Cedars. Membership can be conferred on older Scouts (3rd year campers) and leaders who participate in long term camping at Camp Cedars. The purpose of Nani-Ba-Zhu is to reinforce the principles of the Scout Oath and Law and encourage participation in Scouting and long-term camping at Camp Cedars.

The use of Indian lore is part of the mystery and appeal of Nani-Ba-Zhu. Throughout the testing of candidates, and in all subsequent ceremonies, the character building aspects of Scouting are restated and renewed in a new and dramatic way. The very heart of the NBZ experience is to afford each member an opportunity for introspection as well as application of the Scouting ideals.

Nomination Forms (youth)

NEW  A downloadable spreadsheet has been created to assist leaders in preparing youth advancement nominations.  The file is created in MS Excel and contains macros (so you will need to have them enabled to work correctly).  The new form will allow a leader to keep an electronic file for each Scout that can be updated easily for future nominations.

Updated .pdf nomination forms are also available below for those who would rather continue to utilize the hard copy nomination forms.
