What happened to the paramilitary organization that taught boys to adapt, survive, and overcome, and become moral men?
Our once a year weekend-long solo survival camping trips were my favorites, except maybe the last one I went on. We were allowed to bring our backpack, canteen, knife, compass, a poncho, 10' of window sash cord, emergency survival kit (whatever we could fit in one of the old metal band-aid box: flint and steel, fishing line and hooks, signaling mirror, waterproofed matches, etc.), an empty coffee can, eating/cooking utensils we had made out of wood ahead of time, and a potato.What happened to the paramilitary organization that taught boys to adapt, survive, and overcome, and become moral men?
Nothing if you want to learn basket weaving or how to social with cheerleaders. My daughter and friends' daughters looked into it and they didn't do any "fun" stuff that they were interest in, like camping, survival skills, hiking, etc. It was more of a social club. Girls have been asking for years to be able to be included in Boy Scouts. I guess we just have to call it "Scouts" now.Whatâ€™s wrong with the Girl Scouts?
Many have felt like the Girl Scouts as an organization have moved too far left politically. They tend to have a more liberal agenda and stance on issues and that led to a feeling of indoctrination of the girls. For some, that's fine. But the Bou Scouts have tended to be more conservative. Although in their effort to follow the money, they are moving away from their core values as well. Many gilrls would love to be a part of BSA nd want nothing to do with GS.Whatâ€™s wrong with the Girl Scouts?
