    Nope, that is the difference between the Boy Scouts and Uncle Sam's Misguided Children.

    Boy Scouts don't have heavy artillery.

    They don't need a don't ask don't tell policy?

    I thought both the Boy Scouts and the Armed Forces practiced DADT. No gays welcome in the BSA.

    I recall several girls over the years trying to sue the BSA for membership because, like me, they GSA didn't appeal to them, but the activities the BSA participated in did, so they wanted to join. Doubtless they, each and every one, failed.

    What are the BSA-like scouting orgs that take both girls and boys? Explorers is for older kids. Girl Guides are just like the GSA, single sex.

    Cathy,
    The Assembly of God churches have a program outdoor skills program. It wasn't segregated by gender for any events except overnight trips, the last time I saw anything about it. Lots of day hikes and field skills classes.

    I'm not laughing. I was an Eagle Scout, My Dad was a Scout leader. I learned an awful lot of outdoor skills in that book and applying them in the woods.

    I've seen females in the "Venturing Program"who were as young as 14 years old. Venturing Not exactly for the very young females, but it's a start.

    Well, speaking from my memories as a young boy, just growing into my teenaged years, there would have been alot of skill learning with boys and girls mixed together, but it wouldn't have been camping skills. I just can't imagine their little homones screaming at that age and being on camp outs. There would have been some tent to tent sneaking, I'm afraid. Maybe that's why girls weren't in the Boy Scouts. I don't think I would have let my daughter go on a "Boys and Girls" campout back then. Besides, there were some issues in the manual and insome of the merit badges about boys becomming men and talking about guy stuff and how boys mature, etc.
    My Sister was in Girl Scouts and they did alot of camping and outdoor stuff. Not just selling cookies and making crafts. My sister would come home with blisters from cutting firewood and burns from learning to start fires, and map and compass skills. They had a big girl scouts camp not too far from our home. They also used the Boy Scout camp a few times a year. It would be reserved for them to use on a regular basis. Big Lake, lots of trails, lots of woods and a very secure environment.

    No laughing here either. I have 13 year old twins who are in Boy Scouts. Both are Life rank, one short of Eagle.

    In about 6 months I will have two books for sell. Any bidders? LOL.

    Keep them.

    My firstborn son will be with us in about 4 weeks. I still have my book stowed away somewhere, and it will be my (our) guide in about 9 years when it's time for him to have a book....by then, it'll all be in PDF format anyway.
