    Just me - unless you count my dog who has almost become the Troop mascot and who loves going to camp as much as the Scouts do!

    Me and daughter.

    Hubby helps out in that he will tow the trailer to camp and if I'm really desparate for another adult he has been known to stay on camp. He is also very good at drying and folding tents!

    Daughter is with SSAGO.
    Son was a Scout/Venture and when on work placement helped with an Explorer Unit but not involved at present.

    Me (YL), Mum (BSL), Dad, (CSL).

    My brothers started as beavers, older brother stopped after scouts as there was no explorer unit at that time and is not interested in returning as a leader. Younger brother stopped at scouts, just lost interest.

    I shall work that out eventually, I'm sure Tomahawk! It's early days for me voting "whole family" as my DH signed up as an ASL at the start of this term. DS1 & DS2 are both in Scouts.

    The one thing that is definitely easier now is that I now get 2 hours peace and quiet on a Thursday evening when they are all out!

    Why have i got the Adams family tune going in my head now?

    It's only me, my dad was a scout, venture and a leader for a while but that was a long time ago now.
    What do you care what other people think! - Richard P. Feynman

    A person needs only three tools in life: WD-40, duct tape and a hammer. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If either doesn't work, use the hammer.

    Only me. Two sons have been beavers, cubs, scouts explorers and one YL. The younger one is still an Explorer but only just sadly. Hubby was an ACSL for several years but felt he had done his bit so stopped. Like Tomahawk says, it is certainly easier when you are all involved.

    Ok, I've voted whole family, but that doesn't include my hubby!
    Me, mom, dad, brother, cousins, aunt, uncle, friends, in fact everyone around me apart from my darling hubby! That said, he is quite happy to do all my printing, copying, laminating, letters, organisation, etc for me! So all but in uniform.
