Well said Mary.
I think structured learning suits some people and getting badged can be part of that, but it's not for everyone.
The Army has a set method which is suited to the Army.
I teach Jujutsu and that has a progressive/structured approach, necessary for safety and learning by rote, though we don't take ourselves too seriously and humour is a large part of it too. Especially when I duff it up.
When I'm doing the cooking classes in the farm kitchen it's done in a fun but firm way because of the special needs aspect and also the burny burny, sharp things there.
I use BcUSA for all the diverse stuff on there, but like you I want to enjoy my bushcraft and country skills in a leisurely "Oh I never knew that/seen that done before" kind of way.
Bimbling bushcraft is the way for me.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into Jet engines...
What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
