    • If it ain't broke don't fix it. It sounds like your daughter has a great (girl) scout troop.    Sounds like something to stick with.    With a core group on enthusiastic girls and adults they can stick with traditional outdoor-oriented girl scouting,  and simply ignore any of the new program materials they don't like. Unfortunately highly active outdoor-focussed girl scout troops are uncommon in my area. 
    • Or, to straddle both sides of the fence, you could do what many of the active Arrowmen of my old Lodge did. One sash for work, another sash for uniforms. (And, of course, over the span of many years it's my "clean" one that I've lost track of.)
    • Been there, done that.  Get lots of head bobbing and it never gets done.  Gets to the point when parents just drop at the door and go.  They want to have their Scout in a great program but they don't want to have to give up any time or effort to support it.  I call them out in emails, in Troop Meetings, Court of Honor's, you name it.  When enough events get cancelled, maybe then they will step up.  I should not be working more hours in a week at my volunteer job (Scouts) than I do at my paid job.
