IMHO it really depends on the people in your area that are involved in the organizations.
We've had awonderful experience with Grilscouts. Its an all homeschool troop, about 1/2 Christian 1/2 other (many of us use the lable pagan, but not all do). It's a very active group that has practically evolved into a homeschool group.
Today the Jr & Cadette held a Brownie Ttry-it workshop to earn money for their trip to Savanah. They planned it out and ran it mostly on their own. We (the moms) acted as advisors when needed. Our service unit and council I have dealt with, but nothing really on the national level. I think we have great support on the local level.
The director for the SU daycamp was at the workshop today. The conversation rolled around to daycamp and one of the moms mentioned they couldn't afford it this year. The director walked the mom through the steps to get financial aid from the council.
