    • @ChristianB on behalf of scouter.com moderators, welcome.
    • "Most" troops hesitate to plan their own High Adventure because the don't know how. I recommend troops use and outfitter once to learn the ropes and plan the next adventure on their own.  Or, call council and ask them if they know a Scouter who will lead and teach a High Adventure. We once had a Ventruring Crew that would lead and teach troops the skills for high adventure.  Barry
    • I came here seeking some advice from other scout leaders. We have two brothers in our troop that have recently been receiving harsher treatment from some of our adult leadership. There is some jealousy of them and some hard feelings towards their father. They have been put down and made to feel inadequate by these leaders. 90% of the time every one gets along just fine and the scouts and their parents are very active in the troop. They have now decided that leaving the troop and going to another one is their best option. Again I think having them in the troop benefits everyone and them as scouters as well.  without causing a great disturbance in the troop I don’t know how to approach this topic with our committee or our council. I as a leader in this troop feel like these scouts and their parents have been done a disservice by the leaders who have jealousy towards them.    also all adult parties are in a leader roll both on the scout side and on the committee side
    • Fair enough, maybe our guys were all used to sailing already it wasn't particular new to use.  It was beautiful and a ton of fun. My two High Adventures we did we 74 mile canoe trip on the Buffalo River and backpacking the Gila Wilderness loop in New Mexico.  Neither had no preset itinerary and the youth had to roll their own adventure.  Some things worked, some things didn't....  Like failing to put the food in waterproof containers on canoes....  dunked dinner more that once on the trip. But great adventures!
