scouts-l Mail Archive for March of 2000: Re: The appropriate age (Venturing vs. Venture Patrol)
Mon Mar 13 2000 - 16:18:56 CST
I am constantly amazed at the number of good and dedicated Scouters who say
that "the older boy program, whether it is Venture or Venturing does not
work". Everyday we see in our districts good troops and bad troops. How can
that happen? They both have the same program materials, but the quality of
the program that is delivered is dramatically different. Good troops and
good crews have visionary leaders, ones that are able to make others in their
units, both scouts and scouters alike, see what is possible. Please don't
blame the failure of the older boy program in units on the program because
the program works if you work the program!!!!
I am fortunate that our crew constantly challenges me to look ahead to see
what could be. Right on Bob!
