I was faced with similar circumstances and left a Boy Scout unit in
my home Church because of it. It was the best thing in the world for my son
(the reason I got involved in scouting again to begin with). As a former CM
I was asked by the present CM why I left. I explained the reasons to him and
told him to encourage the Webelos to visit several troops in the area and
then make a decision with thier parents. I think you will just make bad
blood between you and the SM if you handle it any other way. A bad program
and lack of discipline will kill a troops desiribility faster than anything
you could say anyway.
Good Luck & Good Scouting.
