I briefly joined the scouts for 2 years to take part in a DOFE program and almost as soon as i joined a boy started bullying me simply because he could.The leader who was in charge of the program was fully aware of this and actively watched it happen.
At the time i didnt want to say anything to him because i was scared of him and thought reporting jt would make it worse.
On the Expedition i was in a group with him. I had to spend many hours a day in a boat with him and he made my life a living hell for thoes days. The leader also witnessed this and did nothing.
To this day i havent went back to scouts or DOFE he ruined it for me and i hate him for it.
