A reader asked:
Because of her busy schedule, my daughter is going to be a Juliette Scout, an individual scout not affiliated with a troop. Does such a thing exist for Boy Scouts?
If a youth cannot conveniently join a unit, then he or she can register as a Lone Scout in Cub Scouts or Scouts BSA:
The local council will help a family decide if this is a good fit for a youth or not. The bottom of that page shows some typical reasons why a youth would choose to take this path.
Any readers out there with experience with Lone Scouts? Do you recommend it? What are the pros and cons? Add your comments below.
