I have a young lady who enjoys Girl Scouts, but who is disappointed with how little the girls physically do (too much arts and crafts when she wants to do more camping and rock climbing type things), and she's looking forward to being a Venture Scout in a few years.
The info I can find is sparse on girls in the program, but I've read girls can join Venture, Varsity, or Sea Scouting at age 14. Does anyone have experience working with girls in these groups that might be able to give me the scoop?
Are girls welcomed at any Crew, even if there are no other girls?
Are you able to join more than one (for example, be a Venture and a Sea Scout)?
Do the girls work on rank only or are there merit badges (or similar) things that become available to them to earn?
Does anyone know any good websites that would be a good resource for girls in Crews?
