Are boys and girls different kinds of campers?

There have been a couple of interesting articles published today about gender and scouting. First there was one in the New York Times and then a second article in response by the Guardian.

Both of these articles leave me with the open question is the way we approach camping really that different for men and women? I've been co-ed camping since I was in elementary school in my mind, comfort level and experience in the outdoors has a lot more to do with the way we approach camping compared with our gender. What do you think?
