    • Since it seems many summer camps are being cancelled, reduced, or greatly changed, I wanted to see if your council or camp offers a Scoutmaster Merit Badge.  There is no official BSA MB for Scoutmasters, but many camps offer the program to get adults attending summer camp a chance to get out of camp, maybe learn a skill, and show scouts you never stop learning.  I blew the dust off mine today from 2000 in Camp Freedom, Germany.  At that time, we earned a button pin, certificate and patch.  I don't have anything that tell the requirements from then, but can remember a few.  I am interested if you camp offers this to adults and the requirements.  Lets here what you have.
    • @Double Eagle makes a good point. If your pool is 25 feet, knocking the 2C req 5b at home is a good idea. More important, however, is making sure your non-swimmers know line rescues. They'll be the ones out of the water and more likely to notice a tired swimmer if you train them to be observant. They need to know how to tie off a line, and they need the practice throwing buoys. They seriously need to understand limitations (theirs and other friends and families) because odds are, on that dark day, they will be in a position to act the quickest.
    • Thank you! That is close to what I needed to do. I had to go to My Dashboard and then Administration to get the rest of the way. Oddly, Scoutbook insists on giving me the mobile version of the site even on my laptop. Like you, none of the counselors in my troop, including me, are in the report.  
    • Here's what I did just now ... Login and click the pancake menu for quick navigation. Click on My Dashboard. My Dashboard shows my account, and under that my unit is listed right-justified. I click on that. It shows links to my adults and youth rosters, then Troop Reports, MB Counselor List, Print Blue Cards, and an announcement from my council that they updated the MB List. I click on MB Counselor List. It brings up a bunch of filters. At the bottom in red is "search". Click that and the list is generated. FWIW, nobody in my troop is on that list. I guess that's one more Email request I have to follow up.
    • Good question.  Doting all t's and crossing all i's is always important.    Yes, project plan and proposal must be approved before fundraising commences.  Fundraising plan should, of course, be a part of the approved project plan, yes?  One Scout was renovating a charity's closet/bathroom/office space.   Plans included the plumber supervising donating materials and time. Some lumber to buy, sold donuts at a city fair.   Sonofagun, Plumbing Merit Badge came into play , too.  Another Scout was rehabbing a barn at the County Fair.  Barn Super helped with plans ,  Fair Office provided materials.  Four H folks helped with incidentals. No extra funds necessary.   County Parks Okayed the building of a bridge across a creek on a well traveled park trail.  Materials vouchered from Park surplus yard,  Scout arranged funds from the Park Foundation (privately supported), donations publicly encouraged to the foundation.  There are ways to finance any worthy project.
