Cub Scout Pack Survey

Recommended Posts

I plan to launch a parents survey to get feedback and help determine any changes we need to consider.   This is an anonymous survey... not the talent one.  I have a series of questions in mind but I thought I would ask if anyone had suggestions.  I only plan to ask questions that could actual impact our program (so questions about Scout Me In or Scouts BSA name change won’t be included).  Thanks in advance!

Questions pertaining to joint/coed den activities vs single den (single gender) den activities.

Should extracurricular activities be gender-based. I.e. Pinewood derby - should there be a girl winner and a boy winner or just a pack winner? How about best in show awards for the best looking cars, gender or pack based?

If you're going to have gender based awards and winners, you're on the path of having a boy pack and a girl pack, may as well see it through.  I thought the idea of co-ed was so that everyone feels the same and is part of the same group.  wouldn't having one Pack winner meet that need of inclusivity more?

Perhaps, but it isn't my pack and if the goal is to solicit the opinions of the parents - then you have to ask the parents and not assume what is the best outcome. No reason to have a survey otherwise - and they might come to the same decision.
