Kids that dont work on trips in Working with Kids Posted March 15, 2011 Thanks for the information. To give you more details - these scouts are spread out among patrols. Patrol Leaders get together in the beginning of the year and they have a 'draft' of the scouts with the goal being some older scouts in with newer ones. The one exception is our first year scouts - we keep them together to ease the transition from mommy. Most of our issues come up when its time to leave. things need to be packed up, cleaned and made ready to depart. This selected group will find all sorts of ways to not do work. This leads to delays in getting under way for everyone.
