swellmomma Posted June 24, 2012 Share Posted June 24, 2012 I got an interesting email today. Last year I was a leader with the beaver scouts in the neighboring town while my boys did scouts and cubs. (Canadian of course so names are different than what you all are used to). Today the scoutmaster for that group, who also happens to be the area commisioner, asked me if I would be willing to start up a new group in my current town and be the scoutmaster to oversee all the sections within it! :001_huh: Now next year my 4 kids were all going to be involved and I had a TON of ideas and planning on the go so I know I would have no issue with that. But I only completed 1 year as a leader and am still fairly new to this. That said I did spend 9 years in girl guiding as a kid, and 1 year in venturers as a teen (it is the level after scouts in Canada), so I am not new to the program just to leading. I told him I would be very happy to as long as I got help getting started since I have no clue about any of it. Have any of you undertaken anything like this? Have you ever started up your own troop to make sure it was offered in your city/town? What did you find the work load to be like? Tell me I am not crazy taking this on, or at least even if I am bat-sh*t crazy that you think I could do a good job with it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
