Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Outing Parents
Fri, 12 Feb 1999 20:27:32 -0500
Our troop is having one area of difficulty in parental assistance: How
to get parents to drive and/or participate in outings. Here are some examples:
Parent & Scout organized our annual ski trip weekend. Needed one
additional male adult to go. No takers from any of the participating
boy's families. Trip canceled.
Parent & Scout organized a trip to another council's winter camporee.
Needed one additional adult to drive. The adult need not stay overnight
(Camporee less than 1 hour away). No takers from any of the
participating boy's families. Trip canceled.
There are several parents who have refused to supply car insurance info,
thereby insuring they can not drive (car info needs to go on Tour Permit).
There is NO problem with youth participation.
1. How do we raise the participation level of adults on outings?
2. What do we do about the refusers?
Please email me privately.
