I am not a Canadian but one of these recalcitrant Americans ;-). I am
Explorer Post 995's advisor. We function basically as a Venturer group.
Our interest theme is Outdoors and High Adventure. We have crews going
to Florida Sea Base, Philmont, and Canoe Base in 1996. I cannot possibly
tell you how pleasantly surprised I am at how well this has been accepted
by the scouts, community, etc. The girls have a tremendously good impact
on the group as a whole and they are working together extremely well. I
am an enthusiastic supporter of co-ed scouting at this level. I am certain
that most Canadian adult leaders experiences cannot be dissimilar from mine.
Most would not start and go into a co-ed group without the best motives
and good intentions. The best thing that has happened in my own case is
that my wife is going on the outdoors adventures with me. We are having
a terrific time.
