History of FNE


Our FNE movement started in August of 1999 when a group of interested adults, youth, and their families elected to seek out a youth program that would support some ideals including:

·         Singular gender program both at the youth and adult level

·         Service to others

·         Embracing and living the Catholic Christian faith

·         Better understanding and appreciating nature and the outdoors

·         Physically active and challenging to both youth and adults

·         A proven and sustainable program that will maintain its values and ideals even when society may be

          heading off in a different direction

·         Fun, adventure and excitement all in a positive and constructive manner

·         Ceremonies that have purpose meaning and dignity

·         A uniquely uniformed movement, to be visually all members of the same family

·         Seeing each other as brothers and sisters

·         A Christ-centered set of ideals and values with Love for God, one another and humankind

·         Program activities that will help shape the young person into a responsible, loving, caring and successful human being and a member of our community, thus we are a movement

We found the International Union of Guides and Scouts of Europe also known as the Federation of Scouts of Europe (FSE) and it is this growing, dynamic movement that we are members of to this date.

New Groups

Today we are active some 27 different groups throughout North-America.
