    • Do girls want high adventure? If they did venturing would be more popular than it is.   How many girls are in venturing? Maybe 70,000 tops.  What I keep hearing is girls want their eagle, because the GSUSA gold star award is not as good in their eyes. If girls wanted to go camping and go hiking that is what Girl Scouts would be doing more of. Girl scouts is a girl lead program.
      They push girl leadership and girls deciding what they want to do.    There are 1.8 million Girl Scouts, they must be doing something the girls like.       
    • I am going to make this story short.   Church/School gave the troop a room Decades ago and promised they could have it as long as they were there.  The school wants to utilize the room now so they Church/Scout/Scouts come up with a plan.  We have a garage that is connected to a house the Church owns (near the church/school) so the church/school "gave" the house to the scouts and secured the construction to fix the old house and bring it up to code.  finally after 2 years of off and on work we have our first meeting in it Wednesday.  I'll take some photo's for you guys.  Its top notch.

    • No it does not.  Some Packs did get together to do bussing in the past but there was limited usage as many kids weren’t excited to spend 1.5 - 2 hours per day on a bus.  Plus if there was an issue on the interstate it could take much longer (in order to get to the camp you really need to take the only east/west interstate in the area and an accident can significantly impact the commute time).  The in town day camp ended up being a more successful solution.
    • Hello all, I just got started this past August with my oldest son just about to be Tiger. I was recommended to be the new Cubmaster and I'm looking for any tips, tricks and other info. I've been coaching for a few years and work with kids. We have a Tiger Den of 24 boys so we divide and conquer and are looking to have more tigers next year with a new school coming online. So if anyone has advice, please share.  I'm currently the Assistant Den Leader and on the Committee.  Thanks, Kevin
