About setting up High Adventure posts with a crew structure similiar to sea
Has anyone asked the high adventure members what they think?
The response we've gotton from our members has been that they don't want
ranks and they're not interested on working on anything like merit badges,
if they were they'd join the Boy Scout troop or Girl Scouts. Our members
aren't slackers, most are very high achievers, they just don't want
Exploring to become another competitive thing where they feel pressured into
reaching certain achievements. That doesn't mean they haven't learned
anything. One of the best comments I've heard from one of our members is "it
seems like we're just having fun, but actually we've learned a lot.
