Welcome to SCOUTS-L. I have been on the list for about a month myself.
I'm a leader with a Sea Scout group in Kingston, Ontario, CANADA.
We currently have 17 boys, age 11 - 14, and 6 adult leaders.
We are a designated co-ed group, but have yet to have a girl member.
We may have a girl next year graduating from our Cub group (age 8 - 10).
Our group is active in outdoor events, including sailing (two 26 foot
boats owned by leaders), and canoeing. A 14 foot catamaran was donated
to the group last summer, but needs some repair before it is
serviceable. This will be used by the 13 - 14 year olds who have
We usually do a week long canoe trip during the summer, in addition
to canoe training through the months of May and June. In the winter
we concentrate on outdoor survival training and cross country skiing.
I understand that Denmark has co-ed scouting. I'd be interested in
hearing how the program works and any experiences or advice you
might like to offer.
Can you also mention whether "Sea Scouts" is an active group in
Denmark. Could you give the list a quick description of the
structure of scouts in Denmark at the youth member level, by age groups.
Yours in Scouting
