I was a Girl Scout in the 1960’s- Brownie, Junior, Cadette- before other activities took the place of scouting. I reconnected as a mom of two girls and was a Girl Scout Leader for 13 years- starting with 8 Daisys which morphed to 21 Juniors and then gradually weaned down to 4 graduating Seniors who all earned Silver Awards, even though my own daughters had moved on from Scouting. I still stay in peripheral touch with some of those girls. Scouting taught me so many values and leadership skills that I hopefully helped pass on to my own troops.
