SpiralScouts Parent Information Meeting

Do you have children aged 3 years to 9 years old and want an engaging, accepting, and enriching activity for them to join? I'm hoping to start a SpiralScouts Circle in NYC. SpiralScouts is a scouting program for all kids and families, regardless of gender, beliefs, or family make up.

From the SpiralScouts site:
"SpiralScouts is based on the idea of children and parents of both genders working together. Our program encourages girls and boys to learn, play, and work together under the direction of leaders of both genders as a way of showing by example that both men and women are capable and cooperative leaders."

I have been active in Scouting since I was a kid and continued as an adult leader, so I have decades of experience running meetings, camping trips, fund raisers, and other activities.

I need to know how many families and kids are interested in joining, and also what you hope to get from the program. Of course in return, I'll provide information about the organization, activities, fees, and other responsibilities of the families who are joining.

PLEASE NOTE, this Meetup itself isn't a kids' activity, it's an organizational meeting to get a SpiralScouts group set up. Kids are welcome to come, but they're going to be mostly bored while the adults talk.

    Due to delays on the M train, we are running late. Hopefully we still make it there by 7, but we WILL be there! I plan on taking a couple of tables upstairs.

    mike, as there are now only a total of 4 people meeting tonight, will we still be meeting tonight?

    October 24, 2013

    • Michael V.

      Yes, I thought of canceling, but I think even with 4 we can get some decisions made.

    I have a question for those RSVPing- how many children do you have, and what ages?

    September 8, 2013

    • Arlene Fried (Hectuba H.

      i do not have any children but am looking to participate in the community and am looking to help out any way i can. especially in helping the children. Unfortunately i was not blessed with children but feel this is the best way for me to aid the next generation to learn and to grow.
