    My parents meet through Scouts/Guides at the first SAGGA camp and when they married opened a joint Scout/Guide hut (4th Aylesbury). I went through Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Ventures. ACSL at College and when I first started work. left to get married. elder son started Beavers when I was in the middle of 9 months of cancer treatments. 18 months later, they needed a Beaver Leader. I felt I could cope with the time limits of that rather than Cubs (although I was asked would I take on Cubs instead). Further 3 years on Cub leader leaves, ran Beavers and Cubs for 6 months hoping a leader would be found, but Beavers closed. Have run Cubs now for nearly 4 years and after Christmas will take on ADC job. Boys are both in Scouts, although elder one goes for his Explorer vist on Monday. Husband came as cook to Cub camp and comes to arrange furntiture etc at meetings! He was a Scout in his youth.

    Our whole family has been or is involved in Scouting

    My Mum is the BSL
    My Dad is the ESL
    I am the AESL and also help at Beavers
    All 3 of my brothers have been Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Ventures but none of them are still involved.

    In fact my parents met at the Scout & Guide Club at Leeds Uni and apparently half the club ended up marrying other members.

    Fairly even statistics from the poll, but from reading the thread it's interesting to see that it's often all or one, in regards to how many are Scouting in a family.

    Also, looks like a recruitment drive on husbands is needed!!!

    Here, I'm involved in various areas, my Dad is GSL of a Group in the District, and sits on the District Exec. My sister doesn't live at home any more, but she's the same age as the SL and ASL's, and good friends with them, so she will always come along to summer camp as a helper, and some other events too.

    My mum has been involved in Brownies since I moved up to Guides, and has been a Brown Owl for 15 years, a Rainbow leader for a few more and finally handed over the reins this summer.

    My little boy (the reason I rejoined) is 3 and already loves Cubs. He calls Cubs 'Big Boy Playgroup'.

    Me as GSL - joined as ABSL when son joined, Skipped cubs, then SL then GSL.

    Son now in Explorers in Leighton Linslade.

    Daughter PL in scouts.

    Wife not scouty at all, but reads my stuff and edits it into 'parent speak'.
    Without her though none of the rest would happen.

    She only went camping once - when we were students. She doesn't go anywhere that doesn't have room service!

    I must be the exception to the rule here.....it's just me!

    Parents will come along to certain things though and drop me off @ things sometimes to save me taking the car....so really can't complain!

    Me and my sister - I've finally got used to her being an Explorer and not a Scout after about a year! Parents v helpful with lifts, paying our subs, and coming to fund-raisers, but not directly involved as leaders or anything.
