Kayla Arbuckle spent a month in Girl Scouts when she was 10 years old before she dropped out.
“Honestly, the only reason I joined was to do the active things, I didn’t actually want to be a part of selling all the stuff. I just wanted to do the fun things–the badges, doing activities–that kind of stuff,” she says.
The camping trip turned out to be sleeping on the floor and watching a movie, instead of sleeping in a tent and river rafting.
“I was very disappointed because the Boy Scouts are definitely in the woods, fishing, doing all the cool stuff, and we were stuck microwaving marshmallows,” says Arbuckle, now 17, of Lindenhurst, N.Y.
Now with girls in Boy Scouting, once they finish first class, they can complete Star, Life and Eagle in a Venturing Crew.
Let the adventure begin - Join us the first and third Sunday.
