Our experience has been that Scouting is a type of youth group for the LDS church. If you join the Troop, they want you to come to the church. But they do not participate on Scout get-togethers. They remain separate and autonomous.
They are also the only troops to put their church affiliation in their flag. I personally think it is a great idea but I wish they participated more in Council stuff.
Thank you. We seem to be in the minority but our experience is that they stay very separate, to the point of making extra work for camp staff. Others talk about what great scouters they are. I don’t know if their program even follows the guidelines that ours do but there appears to be no oversight from council about what they do. One difference pointed out by another non-Mormon scout family in Utah was that they don’t adhere to the two-deep rule of supervision.
