I'm posting this question in this forum since I'm thinking you all might have the most experience with this. DD and I travel most of the year, and have unschooled until this school year when we landed on a rare opportunity for a kinder that was too good to pass up. I started her with Campfire and Daisy scouts this year (mostly to have some background so that when/if we find a place to land she'll have some experience with those kinds of things) in a virtual environment...and it seems as though Girl Scouts has become pretty diverse and the success depends a whole lot on the individual groups. While I see the possible benefits, I also see a lack of challenge involved too. My sister has a troop that has done crafts for 5 years. While that is great, it's more of a crafting group than anything else, and my niece doesn't have any sense for the outdoors or volunteerism (which I find kind of sad)...so I'm prepared to at some point in the future to take on a leadership role if DD likes the GS vibe. We have the reg materials for Campfire but it is $$ so I'm pondering a bit on that one...even though I see it as somewhat more positive than GS.
Do any of you participate in virtual scouting, etc.? I'm finding that there is not a whole lot of guidance in the virtual world in terms of guiding kiddos through...but perhaps I'm just a newbie.
