One of the ASM's and I are considering approaching the Troop Committee and
scouts with the idea of a long term planning for a trip to seabase. Say
2-3 years. He has prior experience with planning a trip there in 96.
I would like to hear from other scouters, their ideas and experiences
regarding this type of long term planning.
How did you approach it with parents?
How did you deal with scouts that left during the time?
How did you deal with new scouts that came in?
I know about the 1 day signup/call in thing and am not looking forward to
that. Any advice?
I believe that teaching scouts about "long term" planning is important.
Too often I hear "we can't do that, we don't have the money" or 'That's
tooooooo expensive". I think this will help them learn that they CAN plan,
They can go after the bigger piece of pie.
Thanks for your help.
