    • A half-hour north of me, there is one of the oldest Troop cabins in the country. Huntington Beach Troop 1 has been meeting in the same place for a century, and it's a treasure trove of Scouting artifacts. Here is a link to their website's images: https://sites.google.com/site/troop1hb/about-us/inside-the-cabin

    • Death is such a cruel description for a program that is no longer being used ... but yeah. BSA is no longer providing a Varsity Scouts program.
    • Yes. When LDS church announced their decision to start backing away from Scouting, National decided to end the Varsity  with a date of 12-31-17 as the last day. Varsity Scouts can join troops or crews now. The LDS church was the largest user of the program. In fact, I only heard of one group outside the LDS church using the program, and I only ever saw Varsity Scouts once in it's 34 years of existance, and that was at jambo. 
    • Is the Varsity program dead?  Both the youth and adult applications as well as the BSA's program site now make no reference to Varsity.   https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-406.pdf https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf https://www.scouting.org/programs/
