DD1 has just started Brownies - loves it completely in her element. Only problem is that her brownie leader says that they don't go away overnight - no sleepovers, pack holidays or camping. DD is disappointed as she was really looking forward to that especially as the beavers/cubs in our area go camping regularly (not to mention that she won't be able to get those badges ) DD doesn't want to join scouts as too many boys (she's a girly girl). Is there anyway she could join in a brownie camp/holiday if she doesn't belong to that group?
After all my rants upthread, I've got a change of job coming now that means that I will have to stop doing Brownies after this term. I announced it to parents ... three of 22 families have expressed thanks/sorry to see me go / etc. Silence from the other 19 families.
No prizes for guessing how many volunteers we've had in response to "We need a new leader" but I'll give you a clue: it's fewer than one. Our remaining leader is ready to throw in the towel.
