    No scouts. Nor anything else that would cost money. When I was about 13, I joined the Baptist church’s Youth Club which met Wednesday nights, and later that year, I was accepted into Project Allegro, a program for gifted kids that had a weekly after-school meeting as well as summer workshops. That’s about it.

    I was a Blue Bird….that’s before a Brownie…I never made it that far! 😦 I did LOVE it though.

      Blue Birds was before Camp Fire girls. Brownies were before Girl Scouts. I was a Brownie and Girl Scout. I was telling Trinity the other day about our uniforms were dresses. She thought that was funny that we wore dresses. I always wished I was a Blue Bird because we had to wear an ugly brown dress and they’re dresses were such a pretty blue.

      Toby was in the boys version of Camp Fire Girls for a year when he was young. It was called Sparks.

        Yea that’s it…Camp Fire Girls!!! I never made it past Blue Birds! We had blue vests, white shirts and red pants! We had to wear on certain days and we had badges we had sewn on there!

        • Joy says:

          RED pants??? That’s awesome. I’ll bet you guys looked cute. See how times changed? I wore dresses and you guys were already wearing pants. I wonder what the uni’s look like now.

    I loved the Girl Scouts! I was a Brownie with a few friends and my mom still has a picture I drew of a snowman that she puts up every Christmas-good memories of camping retreats and I hope I have a girl one day who joins!

    I wanted to do Girl Scouts, but my dad had this weird ‘thing’ against the Scouts. No idea what.

    So they let me join the Blue Birds/Campfire Girls, instead. only problem was… they didn’t do much on the camping/outdoor front, which is what I wanted. The one time we DID have a picnic/cookout/camporee-type-thing (a huge group of bluebird troops) in the forest preserves? I think I was about 8. Nobody there knew how to light the fires. My mom and I split up, and went around to each group starting their campfires. My mom still tells that story. I quit shortly after.

    I was a Cub Scout before I joined the Navy. 🙂

  7. Just a Mom says:

    I was a Girl Scout! I was a Brownie, a Junior and a Cadet. I made my silver award in 9th grade and then I quit because it was uncool to be in scouts while in High School. I still have my sashes with all my badges!
    My mom was the Boy Scout commisioner in our area. She did it to piss my dad off who was a scout master. My brother made his Life and then quit due to the uncool in high school thing too. We did get to go to the Boy Scout camp, Philmont, in New Mexico. That place was awesome!
    My girls tried scouts but the troops never did anything so they dropped out.

    • Joy says:

      I also went till I was a Cadet JAM. You’re so right. It was VERY “uncool” at the time to be that old and still in it. That’s why I quit too. I still have my sash too and Trinity loves looking at it. There are these dolls, Groovy Girls, and one of them is dressed as a GS so that’s why we talk about it.

    I did 4-H! I started as early as you could back then and went all the way through high school. Most of my friends didn’t know I was in 4-H because we lived in a different county then where I went to school and you had to be in a club in your county. I was fine with that because I had a whole other group of friends that went to different schools and I thought that was neat. I also liked 4-H better because it wasn’t just girls and you could do whatever project interested you and the county fair was the best part!

    I was in Cub Scouts and then Boy Scouts. I got out of it when it became a “nerdy” thing to do at the age. I learned a lot of cool things and had a lot of fun. My dad was the assistant scout master even. 😀
