Former cub scouts or boy scouts?

My 3 kids have been in scouts, 2 cubs and a girl. I've been thinking about forgoing scouts for something else. The something else could be a different scouting org, a mentorship program, 4H, or simply something family led.

The question I have, I think, is whether people here (past scouts or not) think that the programs and/or resources of these organizations can practically be replaced by something else? Note that generally our family doesn't have enough resources to do things like the encampments during the summer, nor are we likely going to be able to afford Philmont, etc.

We are, however, active during the normal scouting/school year, so do all the campouts, most meetings, PWD, trips, etc. We also do a lot of outdoor oriented activities, organized or not. Example, we've walked/boated/biked all the parks in our town, garden, know lots of local flora/fauna, stargaze, bat watch, etc.
