My seven year old now wants to join Girl Scouts - on top of soccer, swimming, etc. What I really want to know is, is it worth the time/effort? As soon as we met the other scouts at the sign up, we were shown the current fundraiser - apparently they have to sell a lot more than cookies these days ? I'm concerned that it's going to be a huge time and financial committment, although the initial registration is only $12, there's troop fees, outing fees, uniform fees, patches to buy, activities to pay for, etc. If your daughter is in scouts, is she really getting anything out of it? I want the truth - good, bad, or otherwise!! Please help!
