I imagine in Alaska there are heartier people involved in scouting, and amazingly enough they are also probably men.

Here most of the scout leaders are single moms and I don't think they could survive a night in Walmart let alone surviving in the wilderness. But if you need someone to make beaded bracelets or host a pizza party then these scout leaders are for you.

I'm just betting if one works hard, they could probably earn their Tupperware badge.

When my boy was in scouts I went with him on the night he was going to earn his Whittling Chip. I got there and the scout leader was setting out blocks of playdough and plastic knives. The kind of plastic knives that you get if your order food to go. I asked if she was serious and she responded by saying she didn't want to risk anyone getting cut and that some of the kids parents were very worried about them having "real" knives. I told her that if she handed out a single whittling chip for carving playdough with a plastic knife she should apologize to the children and then resign. We went home and found a different troop to join. That one wasn't much better but at least he got to use a knife to earn his chip.

I can actually see the humor in taking a group of gender confused girly men camping.

That's already allowed. They made that ruling a few years back.

4-H isn't just farm animals. One of the things that interested me about 4-H is the variety. They even have robotics competition which my boy is really interested in. 4-H groups are run by parent volunteers & the quality of instruction depends on the parents that step up. I'm head over my son's age group & we have an awesome group of parents with varying expertise willing to help.

We don't leave the teaching of reading, writing, or arithmetic to anyone else & certainly won't be leaving the teaching of survival skills to anyone else either. We are DIY when it comes to the training of our kids. I do hope to encourage a love of the woods, camping, hunting, fishing, etc. in as many of my kids friends as possible. The woods out behind our house is a great place for our future teenage son to be so we're cultivating that now .
