Why did you quit? in Open Discussion - Program Posted March 22, 2004 I was a First Class Girl Scout but I was close in quiting. I had been a GS from Brownies through Senior and I was just determined to "get to the end" for First Class before quiting. It was a really difficult time for me to stay in though. And this was two years before they started Exploring Posts witht he girls so I didn't even have that option. I had a leader who just didn't do much. We had our weekly meetings and that was it. I was the only one in my troop who attended summer camps. The leader had a "jealousy" of anyone who did better than her daughter (who BTW, didn't want to be in GS) Once If got my Fist Class, I quit and joined 4-H for two more years. My Father was a life Scout. At the time, he had no interest in siting in a field for bird study, so he let his Eagle rank slip by (this was in 54 when it was still required. But he looks back on it now and really regrets not pushing just a bit more. He helped inspire my brother and myself in "finishing what we started." My brother is an Eagle Scout.
