Scouter Paul on Shark game. Complete the Camping merit badge requirements. Though I would advised keeping a well documented journal of all miles obtained.
NEVER STOP EXPLORING
The requirement for the Camping says to include at least one week long camp, can I use more then one? For the camping award, if a boy works at a summer camp, do those nights count as camping nights? I would think so since summer camp nights count when they are campers but wanted to make sure. Do the additional miles need to be at Boy Scout Activities or can they be at other activities? Randi Personally I would count them.
Though use your best judgement. This awards is not written as the Camping Merit Badge Terry I would count them, as long as it was in a tent.. Scout Mom They can be done at other activities. Though I would advised keeping a well documented journal of all miles obtained. How are miles calculated for the skating portion of the riding outdoor badge? IS it a simple calculation of the rink's diameter x the number of times around? Ralph - Figure skaters don't just do laps, so it seems it would be pretty difficult to determine the miles skated when skating various figures all around a rink for a few hours.
I guess it would need to be estimated. Your son's competitive practice and performance skating should not count for this BSA award because it is not a scouting activity and is not focused on earning this award.
I believe that the Riding requirement for 2a is incorrectly written. The cycling merit badge requires miles, while the Ranger riding elective requires miles for biking or miles for mountain biking. Scouter Paul, replying to Emke above, is only counting the miles portion of 2a and NOT counting those required to earn the merit badge or elective.
To be consistent with the other segments, I don't think the additional miles of 2a should be listed. I agree with Emke - Requirement 3 would be redundant if 2a really requires this extra miles. If it is not included, then Requirement 3 makes sense to bring the total miles to Bryan asks National Council experts to clarify these kinds of questions. If the area around your boat launch has become a garbage dump and the scouts do a significant clean-up to make the location more usable, then that sounds like conservation work.
What "programs" fulfill the requirements of part 3g of the Adventure badge? Do High-adventure programs like challenge events and shotgun shell reloading and shooting offered at Philmont count individually?
NHMom - Comparing 3g to 3a-f, each trek would count as 1 activity. The explanatory paragraph at the end allows unit leaders to double dip or more if they want. A trek at Philmont where the scout backpacks, rock climbs, and earns his 50 Miler, could conceivably be counted for 3a, d, f, and g. Requirement 4 in Aquatics reads "Earn at least one of the following: Tim - Since another device can be earned for each additional 25 hours of accumulated aquatic activity, I'd say that initial 25 hours should also be accumulative, not a specific activity.
Req 5 says 50 hours of any combination, so that second part of Req 4 seems redundant. In other words, can a Scouter who has already completed the merit badges and hours requirement for Aquatics use hours outside of Scouting to earn a gold device.?
Eva - No, the requirement specifics do not change for working on a gold device. When a scout reaches camping nights, does he receive a gold device and a silver device, or just a silver device?
Stephen - The scout would get a patch for the first 25, then a gold at 50, a gold at 75, a gold at , then a silver at Trying to be thrifty, for even higher counts, I would ask the scout to just wear their current devices rather than purchasing redundant golds that would not actually be worn.
For example, the silver and 3 golds already owned to show If the scout really wanted to, 4 gold devices could be worn to signify the , according to the statement in the requirements - "Scout may wear any combination of devices totaling the current number".
