As most of you said, I wasn't planning on worrying about ranks because of the limited time I have in the scouts, just looking to see what you all thought.
The merit badges(the skills obtained from them) and friends who actually know something about camping were what drew us in.
Blake&Adams, that's sound advice you guys provided. I imagine I'll be helping whenever they ask for it; they're not very bashful which helps. Varsity scouting may not be a bad idea, I plan on going to college when I'm 18 but it will be in-state so it wouldn't be so bad.
Thank you for all the help, it's all very useful !(This message has been edited by Allure)
