A business associate of mine who is very active in Scouting tells me that the Boy Scouts are facing enrollment challenges for two basic reasons: (1) as this nation has become more urbanized, we’ve lost our sense of the value of the natural world, and (2) the number of children born to American parents has declined over time, and the Boy Scouts have a very hard time attracting members from immigrant families.

These Scouts are into the old fashioned movement focused on adventure.

THe link leads to a WIki on the movement - very intersting....
