Do they ban all forms of knot tying, shelter building, and fire starting as well?

Not a scout here, but my father was an Eagle.  Unfortunately I learned far less practical and productive things during my formative years. The knots I earned, for many reasons, I would no longer wear.

I was a Scout, but I only made it to Star rank (and my Star project was a failure, but I didn't tell the scoutmasters that). So my Scouting career petered out in disgrace. My brother made it to Eagle though and Order of the Arrow. I generally liked scouting. I loved camping and hiking. I wasn't so fond of the "discipline" and paramilitary aspects, but my troop was fairly laid back and only indulged these things we were at Camp Horseshoe and had to impress the other troops.

The EA (and SCOBA before it) has wholeheartedly endorsed scouting as an admirable activity for Orthodox youth. http://eocs.org/

I was in Cub Scouts (WEBELOS & Arrow Of Light). Still have my scout uniform in my closet. I worked hard and was proud of what I earned. This was in the 1980's.

They have their own group called the Pioneers.  I was a leader in that group for a while.

Somewhere between Bear and Eagle. Backpacked and camped about once a month. I have fond memories of Fort Baker below the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County where live ordinance was easily obtainable. The tear gas canisters thrown into the campfire were beneficial to preparing myself for Ronald Reagan's People's Park fiasco years later.

Congratulations on your achievements!

The proudest I have ever been for my son was the day he received his Eagle (he's an Arrowman, as well).

I was not in Scouts. Ironically, my father felt it promoted homosexuality. (Oh well :/)

My little brother is First Class. A trio of my cousins were all Eagle Scouts.

No seriously, I loved scouting. The only bad thing: It rained during all my hiking trips.
