    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    It was dropped in 1972 and added back in 2014.

    Girl Scouts Suing the Boy Scouts

    In that case, I'm left not really understanding what you mean by "The lack of actual requirement for anything related to outdoors beyond First Class as well." But there have never been such requirements other than merit badges, unless you count the brief period when the participation requirement read "While a Life Scout, work actively as a leader in meetings, outdoor activities, and service projects of your unit" 1958-1965.

    Camping merit badge is still required and so is outdoor cooking (both camp and trail) for the Cooking merit badge. While some outdoor requirements have gone away since I became an Eagle in 1999 (like thr option for the more indoor Sustainability instead of the outdoor oriented Environmental Science), Cooking, with its outdoor element, only became required in 2014.

    Where did you go to summer camp?

    I'd love to hear how it is. I camped at Camp Bell a couple of times (Valley Voyager and a Wilderness Survival overnight) in the 90s when it was not running as a separate camp, but just a location on the map for overnights from Hidden Valley. If I remember correctly, it's a patrol cooking camp?

    Where did you go to summer camp?

    Camp Carpenter (Manchester, NH, Daniel Webster Council) as a Cub Scout. Hidden Valley Scout Reservation (Gilmanton Ironworks, NH, Daniel Webster Council) as a Boy Scout. My Venture Crew (note, *not* Venturing Crew, and pre-1998, so not Venture patrol) did a week long canoe camping trip on Squam Lake.

    EIN Assistance - bank account needs

    Here are instructions on how to explain things to the IRS from the Sam Houston Council that look like they cover (through Plan B) your situation: http://www.samhoustonbsa.org/checking-account-instructions

    EIN Assistance - bank account needs

    It sounds like your chartered organization needs to sort out their legal status before you can sort out yours.

    Unofficial Seabadge "Knots"

    On a related question... The Seabadge is won over the right pocket, even, as I understand it, on the khaki Boy Scout uniform. So if you wear a jamboree patch is it either/or, or can you move the Jamboree patch up (as you would if you wear the optional name plate and/or interpreter strip)?

    Winter Camping Plans?

    The claustrophobic in me freaks out at the idea of quinzees, even though I know they have a long history.
