Look at these girls: http://epaper.bostonglobe.com/infinity/article_popover_share.aspx?guid=12c84660-0428-44b3-a64b-5d1232622bd8 That article make me want to join up as a Girl Scout leader, maybe be a troop's outdoor expert. Looks fantastic to me, I have been reading about the Girl Scouts, they seem fantastic to me. There is a long list of outdoor thinks they can do. They are Girl lead, they have patrols. Unlike Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts can run power tools, including chain saws. I am reading a lot of good things about Girl Scouts that they are actually doing better than the BSA. . .
RememberSchiff posted a topic in Girl Scoutinghttp://www.wvgazettemail.com/news/20170627/1000-plus-girl-scouts-descend-on-wv-for-jamboree ... Through a partnership with the National Boy Scouts of America, the Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council are able to host this yearâ€™s Jamboree for Girl Scouts across the nation at a facility Brown refers to as, â€œthe Disney of camp grounds.â€ For the five days 1100 Girl Scouts spend at the Summit, they will get to explore the Mountain Stateâ€™s wilderness through activities like kayaking, paddle-boarding, hiking and zip-lining. Theyâ€™ll also hear from educators, like scientists and researchers from NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency. The trick, according to Kathy Storage, camp and travel manager for the Girl Scouts of Black Diamond, is to offer all the educational experiences â€œin a fun way!â€ More info at source link above. P.S. The girl and adult fee is $300 per person if a $30 non-refundable deposit is made by December 16; if you opt to make a deposit; the balance is due in three $90 installments on March 31, April 30, and May 31, 2017. After Dec. 16, the event fee will be $330 a person until the May 31st final event deadline. The price includes admission, tents, cots, basic meals, activity equipment, program supplies, facilitator support and a patch. Note: To register at this price, the troop/group must have at least have the following adult:girl ratios: 2 adults for every 16 Girl Scout Juniors (4th-5th graders) + 1 adult to each 1-8 additional Juniors; 2 adults for 20 Girl Scout Cadettes (6th-8th graders) + 1 adult for each additional 1-10 Cadettes; 2 adults for 24 Girl Scout Seniors (9th-10th graders) + 1 adult for each additional 1-12 Seniors; 2 adults for 24 Girl Scout Ambassadors (11th-12th graders) + 1 adult for each additional 1-12 Ambassadors.

While canoeing a couple of junior Girl Scouts through flooded savannah, between sawgrass, and toward a white crane, letting them dip their hands in the water (because that's what crazy great uncles heedless of snakes and gators do), I once again heard the refrain "Boy Scouts are more fun than Girl Scouts." These two have slightly older brothers so they've been to pack events and have seen the oldest come back from troop events. Of course that was while canoeing downwind. After having to work and slog upwind, they may have given me a different opinion if they weren't so tired! I don't propose to understand the nuances in GSUSA culture, but either there is something about the young female mind that is wired to say the grass is greener, or the field they are in needs to be reseeded!
John-in-KC posted a topic in Issues & PoliticsThe Archbishop of St Louis is not happy about the values of Girl and Boy Scouting Two paragraphs... "St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson has issued a letter calling on parishes to seek alternatives to Girl Scouts, arguing that the program and related organizations conflict with Roman Catholic teaching." "Carlsonâ€™s letter further references concerns with the Boy Scouts of America, wondering â€œin which direction this once trusted organization is now headedâ€ in terms of protections to religious organizations."
