Milo did cub scouts when he was in 4th grade. It was his first year at a new school and I thought it would help him make friends. He had some fun, but it turned out it really wasn't his thing so he only did it for that year.
When I did girl scouts as a kid it was once a week right after school and there was one leader and a few parent helpers, that was it. For cub scouts, there was a pack meeting once a month, a den meeting once a month, a pack outing once a month and a den outing once a month. So every week there was something and all the meetings were later, after dinner time, and each scout had to have a parent there at everything. It got to be a bit much after a while. If I had just the one kid it would not have been a big deal, but trying to find arrangements for the other kids so I could go to all these meetings where I just basically sat there and watched the kids do their activities, just wasn't for me. Some kids and parents really liked it but it just wasn't our cup of tea.
No, I will not have Lucius join the Boy Scouts when he is old enough. The Boy Scouts discriminate against gays and atheists (we are atheists) and I do not support this organization other than the public funding that I am forced to contribute to by means of taxes.
