  1. I think teh opposite of what one said. The public school IS a charitable organization, even though it is the governmentr adn the private school may or may not be a charitable organization. Association with a church does not exclude it from being for-profit.
  2. The problem is finding an organization that will accept soemone younger than 18. Any ideas? Ken
  3. Boy, do you guys let loose! Thanks for the ideas! Ken

  8. Just wanting others' interpretations of what is considered a troop or patrol activity. Our new scout patrol does not go camping more than two or three times while they are 11 years old (church policy) and they do some of there hiking during the time of their patrol meetings. Some argue that the hike will not count, as it is the patrol meeting, but I wonder if a hike would really be considered a patrol "meeting." It seems that a hike is a patrol activity and not letting a boy count it as a patrol activity because it was on Wednesday evening instead of Saturday is a bit picky. I also conside
