At the risk of receiving stinging criticsim, I'll make a brief comment.
If as a result of cultural ideals from past ages today's GSUSA leaders do
not feel confortable camping, I dare to suggest this is a perfect reason to
encourage and welcome more *male* leaders into the program!
The BSA now allows women to hold any leadership position, yet in my
experience, male leaders are not looked upon too favorably in the GSUSA.
IMO, that needs to change.
