My wife and I used to be advisors for a co-ed high adventure post,
and there is now a post forming in our neighborhood. I voluntered
to help on the committee. The advisor, was in my Wood Badge patrol
This post is already scheduled for Philmont next summer, and just
went on a camping trip to include Cedar Point (theme/amusment park).
Also went on a semi white water raft trip last spring time.
So far it seems like the post is very much like out old post.
Meeting are short and to the point: Plan the next event, review
long term plans, plan fund raisers, review equipment needs, plan
the next party, then adjurn to eat pizza!
I almost forgot, they also plan to be a 'service' unit at the
next district camporee.
I think the key is to let them plan the activities, with some
assistance in the beginning, and help them determine goals,
and meet the financial needs of the group, so they can all
participate. I know they are talking about a ski weekend
in the winter etc. I can forward you more details after
the next commitee meeting.
I used to be an Owl, always an Eagle, and an Eagle dad etc.
