Well I didn't know wether my letter would be recived. Sorry for not being a
My troop is 6 years old and I am a eagle scout (my court of honor will be on
the 31 of July if anyone wants to come). 2.5 years ago the troop had about
65 active scouts and about 20 were old enough for high adventure trips. At
the time the meeting ran like clockwork.
Game for skill
Our new meetings are not like this. The older scouts almost turned into a
seperate troop and now are not comming to meetings to help the younger scouts
advance and I need help (the troop needs help) with some Ideas on how to get
the older scouts involved and the parents that do come to the meeting just to
help out to feel needed and know what they should be doing.
My troop at one time had won so many awards in all scout skills they were
asked not to perticipate and instead run the events.
Please send me Ideas of meeting structure and troop structure and how your
own troop has dealt with this.
