I think many Scouters have children in GSA and BSA. I have and 16
year old daughter and a 14 year old son. Both are in Scouts. My
daughters GS Troop is very active in camping and hiking my son's BS
Troop in not as active.
Many times we have taken the older Boy's and Girl's on hikes and
Campouts. Each time they have gone as individual troops each with
adult leaders from the respective organizations.
But by sharing transportation and other cost including equipment we
have been able to take more Kids into the outdoors and have helped
keep them in scouting.
It is time for All of us to open our minds and hearts to new ideas
even though we may not like it at first ( as I did)!!!
