I don't run a tight ship, but the boys do. This year at summer camp, all 4 first year boys all took the same MB's, but at different times, but stayed together as buddies. I had no say-so in that process. The PL signed up the boys online. I didn't know what MB's they were even taking until I was asked to sign the Blue Cards. AND for the outdoor overnight for Wilderness Survival, one of the boys was homesick, so the PL notified the leaders at the overnight site, he and the homesick boy would be returning back to our camp. The PL knew he had to stick with his buddy and took a partial because he stayed back at camp with the boy. He couldn't leave him there alone overnight with just the two adult leaders (only 4 boys all first year at summer camp this year). My PL takes the leadership training in the Buddy System extremely seriously. When I reminded him he was going to have to take a partial by missing out on the overnight he just looked at me and said, "I know, but I have to take care of my boys." For an 11 year old boy, even I was surprised at that. My ASM is the PL's grandmother and told me later that she started to cry a bit when she heard him tell me that.
Stosh Rule #2: "Look and act like a Scout". Tenderfoot Requirement #9, Take care of your Buddies, A scout helps other people at all times, is trustworthy, and somewhere wedged in some crack, a Scout leads by serving. This kid doesn't seem to think lip service will cut it for rule #2.
