OtherLittleGuy: Wait, first they don't want the gay Scouts, now they don't want the straight Scouts?


They're not straight, they're convex.

tallen702: What the DNRTFA people seem to have missed is that this is a high adventure camp unlike any other that the BSA operates. There are activities at Summit Bechtel that Philmont doesn't even compare to. I used their mountain biking trails this spring and they aren't some pansy rail-trails or anything of the sort. Even the "beginner" trails will get a reasonably in-shape person winded pretty easily. Not to mention the sheer rock faces for climbing and rappelling, the Class III-V+ whitewater on the New River Gorge, and the thousands of miles of strenuous hiking trails in and out of the gorge where all the activities take place. Every main trail in Philmont is under a 5% grade. Even the hike up Baldy is under that grade IIRC. Meanwhile, trails like the NPS's Kaymoor Trail in the gorge are stair-masters from hell:

/Hot like a Charleston WV summer.

I get winded just looking at that.

Years ago I visited a national jamboree, and young prostitutes converged on it, setting up shop in the enormous parking lot in trailers.  They were charging only $5-20 a trick, and condoms were not involved, and they had a lot of money in their lock box.  Security finally noticed all the Boy Scouts who were heading out to the parking lot and notified the cops.  Speculation was that in ten days to two weeks, a lot of boys were going to get a really good lesson in hygiene.

I know each individual BS group is different, but it seems like there are too many of them that have had helicopter parents take over.  They camp out inside of community centers instead of outdoors.  They don't allow them to use knives or start campfires.
What categories are those kids earning badges in? Video game playing?

Be Prepared  - Tom Lehrer

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scout's marching song,
Be prepared! As through life you march along.
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell.

Be prepared! To hide that pack of cigarettes,
Don't make book if you cannot cover bets.
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure
That they will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
When the scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that it be shared.
Be prepared!

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scouts' solemn creed,
Be prepared! And be clean in word and deed.
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice,
Unless you get a good percentage of her price.

Be prepared! And be careful not to do
Your good deeds when there's no one watching you.
If you're looking for adventure of a
new and different kind,
And you come across a Girl Scout who is
similarly inclined,
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared.
Be prepared!
