But, if you join Campfire, you're not a Boy Scout, and you can't earn Eagle;
or you're not a Girl Scout and can't earn Gold.
And whatever Campfire's highest rank/award may be, no one outside
Campfire has heard of it, which can't be said about Eagle.
I'm not saying there's anything at all wrong with Campfire's program, but
it isn't GSUSA or BSA.
