In the midst of an article about something else entirely, I came across this quote about Girl Scout camps:
The girls leave home on Friday night to have a great time, enjoy each other’s company, and return on Sunday with, among other things, a car full of stuff that smells like smoke.
I’m sure any parents who have had their children (Guides, Scouts or other) go on camp will recognise the delight that is the morning after washing pile!
It made me wonder, what other things that we do look totally different from the outside?
If you run a Guiding unit, have you ever had to correct a parent’s expectations? If you’re a parent, have you ever assumed something about what goes on that turned out to be slightly different?
