Too bad Nery you didn't have that when growing up.
That's good that now you're kids have the cahnce at least.
Hopefully your son will continue if he enjoys it enough.
Good organizations to have some fun while learning lots as well :)

Sorry you didn't enjoy it Glenda,
Least you were able to have other kinds of fun
Most often in those organizations .. they go places & do many things.
What about your own kids .. were they ever interested in it?
Just wondering :)

I was a girl scout. Started as a brownie and advanced to Junior scout, never made it to cadet though.

We had a very very active troop. We did lots of fun stuff, camping in the rocky mountains, canoing down the river, camping in the badlands of North Dakota. I have a sash full of badges that I worked very hard for and learned lots a long the way.

My daughter is five and I just called the other day to see what troops were available near us, so she may just become a Daisy Scout this fall.

I know its a bit hokey, but if you find the right troop, there really is a lot of new experiences.

my kids were all involved in cadets for a while. the eldest to didnt like it at all. the third loved it but because of his medical problums, had to drop out. the youngest is a softy and hated being yelled at. we were never anywhere where they was really cubs or scouts.
all my kids were usually working part time jobs when younger.they all deliverys on type of paper or another.the second oldest had an oil field job at 14.(plus school).

the step kids (daughter and son)we had no say.she still keeps it that way.(they are 24 and 21 this year.

I went from Brownies through Cadets. I didn't like GS all that much, but I loved camp. I went at least 4 or 5 years. Fun! But I don't have time to talk about it. :( Still swamped at work.

Hi Glenda,
I assume cadets is something similar to scouts?
Least they tried it for awhile :)
