I was wondering. There was a boyscout troop at Tsarkoe Selo, and Alexei was a boyscout. Did AN or any of her sisters become girl scouts/guides? ???

no i don't think so. Founded in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, by visionary Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts started with a membership of only 18 girls and a dream. Juliette, referred to as "Daisy," dreamed of giving the United States "something for all the girls." She envisioned an organization that would bring girls out of their cloistered home environments to serve in their communities and experience the open air. Within months, girl members were hiking through the woods in their knee-length blue uniforms, playing basketball in a curtained-off court, and going on camping trips.

Thanks! I knew Aleksey joined something like that. I was thinking maybe army ROTC, since it existed back then...

I think all the girls would have enjoyed it because girls scout/guides was more needle work and cooking (so have I heard but I could be wrong). Boy scout was more like outdoor thinks like hikning and so during that time.
