One of my aunts is possibly the oldest living Campfire Girl. She was one of my inspirations for promoting our Venturing Crew.

That's wonderful that you want to help out. Thanks for sharing.
I know nothing about the Camp Fire program. Could you describe how it's different from Boy Scouts?

Last thing I can think of now is that kids don't rank up, which I hate. They progress by age/grade level until they are freshmen. At that point they work towards their WOHELO, which is the campfire equivalent to an Eagle Scout, however you can not earn it until you are a senior or 17 years old. At that point you must submit a book documenting your last 4 years of volunteering, leadership, completed lessons for their beads. Letters of recommendation, and essay. It turns into a 6"binder. I'm terrified of getting kids to that age

From what little I know, the advancement part sounds similar to girl scouts. It's mostly by age. I wouldn't like it either. I can imagine that submitting a 6" binder, and then wondering whether 4 years of work is going to be accepted or not is a lot worse than what we complain about.
Is leadership among the kids, within the unit, part of the program? I guess what I'm asking is there something similar to the patrol method? Or is that what you are adding because you have the flexibility?
