I worked with my daughter and her troop on a number of this and found a number of things in comparision to being in Scouts with my son and Venturing with my daughter and my son.
- Troops are organized by girls of typically the same age:
- Very little opportunity for leadership
- Fewer opportunities to train others
- No age diversity and challenges in this area
- Troops are pretty small
- Troops are constantly closing and merging
- Forms and applications for trips are more restrictive and require more lead time than BSA activities
- Local superstructure organization doesn't seem to be very supportive
- Many badges are not necessarily focused around occupational areas of interest
- Only the gold award receipients receive substantial recognition
- The youth in the organize get very few opportunities to lead.
i enjoy Venturing more than Girl Scouts, because it offers the youth a lot more...
From the mouth of a father who has happy young ladies. Try Venturing - take your girls to the next level.
This is one of the most debated myths Scoutmasters use to protect their gates. They have let the Scout stew until he is now 17 years old, nearly 18 - and now everything is hurry up before I am 18.
If you are 15-17 and a Life Scout - let's get you in THIS crew so you can be treated fairly. Here's the requirement as stated in your very own book. If you Scoutmaster says otherwise, your book, whether he likes it or not, is correct.
- Be active in your troop, team, crew, or ship for a period of at least six months after you have achieved the rank of Life Scout.
- Demonstrate that you live by the principles of the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your daily life. List on your Eagle Scout Rank Application the names of individuals who know you personally and would be willing to provide a recommendation on your behalf, including parents/guardians, religious, educational, and employer references.
- Earn a total of 21 Merit Badges. 13 required, the others non-required.
- While a Life Scout Serve Actively in your unit as a: Venturing crew/ship. President, vice president, secretary, treasurer, quartermaster, historian, den chief, guide, boatswain, boatswain's mate, yeoman, purser, storekeeper, webmaster, or Leave No Trace trainer.
- Do your Eagle Service Project.
- Have a conference with the Advisor.
- Go to your Eagle Board of Review.
It's not that hard guys. If you are stuck and sick of baby sitting it's time to come to the Dark Side. We are green, and we have better food.
