For Pagans who wish to have an alternative to the
God belief based boy scouts ....
Pagan scouting group takes root
By Jeff Wright
... this is the SpiralScouts - the pagan version of learning outdoor skills
and earning badges.
Begun in 2001 in Washington state, SpiralScouts has grown into a
movement serving families of various minority faiths in 20 states, Canada
and Europe. The newly created Emerald Earth Seekers in Eugene is the
organization's third "circle" in Oregon, following the lead of similar groups
in Salem and Portland.
But why enroll her son in SpiralScouts instead of, say, the Boy Scouts?
Glickman says the Boy Scouts often have a Christian flavor and, as their
name suggests, is for boys only. "I like the alternative religion and the fact
that it's co-gender," she says of the SpiralScouts.
