New girls in Scouting in Issues & Politics Posted Tuesday at 05:42 PM 28 minutes ago, Tired_Eagle_Feathers said: I've been reading up on this "Family Scouting" stuff.https://i9peu1ikn3a16vg4e45rqi17-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Family-Scouting_Infographic_v10-1.pdf I think it's pretty clear that the primary driving force here is decades of declining membership. But the infographic states that the rationale is that families are so busy that they would prefer a "one stop solution" for Scouting. As the father of a son and daughter, and my wife is the troop leader for her Girl Scout troop and my son is in Cub Scouts, I agree, it would be great to have just one activity to juggle in the schedule! But it does not look to me like BSA Family Scouting achieves that at all. If your children are still in separate Dens or Troops, then what schedule consolidation has happened? Where is the convenience over just staying in BSA/GSA? Note the wording on the infographic: are interested in a program like Cub Scouts for their daughters are interested in a program like Boy Scouts® for their daughters They do not say they are specifically interested in CUBS or SCOUTS...just a program LIKE Scouts. So who knows what sort of program that may be.
