His attendence on campouts is not real good. I explained to the Mom about

I am also interested in this issue, Not from a call point of view (yet) but
because I now have a scout who's parents are divorced.
He is with dad 3 of 4 weekends. Because Mom won't support football, dad
will not support scouts. Had this kid for 3 months and he has yet to
attend an outing. Can't go to summer camp because its "dads" week, I am
not sure how this kid can survive or grow in scouts.
