Now, they are dumbing-down scouts...

This is from the UK....
Scouts in the UK will be able to earn badges in skateboarding, quad bike racing and making fruit salad, under a revamp aimed to make the movement more attractive to today's children.

The Associated Press reports the Scout Association is introducing 40 new badges in the biggest overhaul of the century-old movement.

“Young people today have a larger choice than ever before of activities to fill their spare time with,” said chief scout Peter Duncan.

Six to eight year old ‘Beaver Scouts’ will be able to earn badges in healthy eating, while scouts aged over 10 will be able to earn badges for street sports.
