What I said was that the phrase "family scouting" wasn't common in a boy scout discussion. Families may have camped with a troop, but it wasn't common enough to suggest family scouting.
The BSA has started something I'm not sure they can stop. Even if Family Scouting will only be reserved for the pack, I'm not sure parents will leave it there. Especially now that big sister is in one of the patrols. And, if membership is the goal, would National really want to restrict it.
The G2SS suggests otherwise:
@DeanRx originally asked about a patrol meeting for an all boy unit. If one of the two required over 21 leaders brings his scouting daughter to the patrol meeting, doesn't that trigger the requirement for a third registered over 21 years old female leader?
With regards to the info graphic previously posted, it came from the BSAs family scouting website (https://www.scouting.org/familyscouting/). The site very clearly engaged both Cubs and Boy Scouts.
I suppose we'll know in a few years how it really plays out.
I guess that is one way to deflect it. However, consider the scouting family of the ASM dad, CC mom, daughter Sally and son Bob in two separate patrols, and little Cub Scout Susie all on the same Troop campout. I'm not sure anyone cares who is responsible for little Susie, it's a family fun scouting weekend.
Get two or three of those families involved.......... I think that's what Eagle94 referring to.
For the last 100 years, family scouting and boy scouting were never two phrases mentioned together while discussing the boy scouting experience. I've heard it talked about quite a bit this year. Maybe that is a genie that should never have left the bottle.
The moderators are going to eventually switch out the Patrol Method forum to a RV discussion forum. And Religion will never get it's own forum.
