I couldn't agree more. There should be plenty of activities without
introducing waterfront activities at this age. I've run into this before
with very good, but overzealous Cub programs.....by the time these boys
crossed over into Boy Scouting, the whole first and even some of the second
year program events we offered had already been done by the Webelos leader.
Gotta look at the whole program that is offered in this wonderful world of
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
