  1. True, 11 years isn't that new, but I think that people definitely don't know much about it. Even our Council is rather iffy about starting one because they frankly, have no clue what to do with Venturing :p Sea Scouting in Nebraska? How does that work haha?


  2. Thanks! It seems like I might have to start my own crew, which I don't want to do lol.The largest crew in my district went from 18 to 7 to 4... to none. I agree with UK's co-ed program, but the uniforms look like a McDonald's burger flipping uniform :p

  4. Hiya!

     

    Ok so I'm thinking on going into Venturing (have a few months w/ age requirements. However, what's the deal with Venturers being able to carry pocketknifes? Is there a patch like Totin' Chip, Firemen Chit, Paul Bunyan? Is there any requirement or test needed before you can use/ carry a pocketknife or light a fire?

     

    Thanks!


  5. Well ntrog8r, this applies to me personally, but I'm a girl that needs alot of structure. I'm appealed to the rank advancements in Boy Scouts/ Cub Scout, and Venturing doesn't have that. Also,Venturing isn't that known in my area, so it'd be difficult to start a Crew (none in my area). I don't wanna be the crew that dies out after a year.


  6. Hello! First off: Don't get your knickers in a knot just yet, hear me out. So I'm in the MYP IB Program (see link) and we have to do 50 community service hours each year. I'm a girl that really wants to scout but I'm not keen on Venturing. (And obviously can't do Boy Scouts :l\) So I was thinking about CREATING my own scouting program, designed to help kids understand the disabled better and having fun scouting together. I have volunteered at Special Olympics, but am not really sure how to plan a program (skills, badges, activities) Any ideas?

    Thanks!


  7. wow!Sprechen sie Deutsch? Anyway, I decided just to wait, Girl Scouts might just not be for me. Too much "touchy friendship" stuff lol :D I'm trying to persuade my brother to join too, he'd be 16 when I join. He's a computer geek so some high-adventure will be good for him :) I wish I just found the right troop for me.


  8. Ahh... I remember being a little kid (i'm 13 now :D)and watching by older brother become a Cub Scout. He was a... Bear or Webelos, not really sure, and all I wanted was to wear the uniform and get the "little belt badges", as I called them. I used ta walk 'round the house in his neckerchief and carved my name into the dresser with his new pocketknife. I wanted nothing more than to be a Scout...So I got signed up for Daisys! :] woohoo. All I got was a blue tunic from my troop and we didn't do ANYTHING! No camping, no outings, no "little belt badges" and neckerchiefs. Boys are so lucky.
