  1. "Oh and did i mention that DL is refusing to get Baloo to take her boys on a webelos campout?" From a post by Scoutnut, Posted 01 September 2014 - 10:45 AM "BALOO is required for camping as a Pack. For Webelos camping alone as a den there is no outdoor training that is required by BSA National. Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders is highly recommended, but not required by BSA National. Check with your local council to verify what their requirements are. Local councils are allowed to have stricter policies." http://scouter.com/index.php/topic/26510-question-about-webelos-camping/

To take it offline you can use the following links: The online video used for training can be found here: http://trainingmedia.scouting.org/Video/Training/pd/ypt1/index.html The quiz can be found here: https://sites.google.com/site/scouterresearchcenter/Youth%20Protection%20Training%20Quiz.pdf The Facilitator’s Guide can be found here: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/100-023_WB.pdf You can have parents turn in the quiz, but no card can be issued/printed.
  4. We cross our second year Webelos/AOL Scouts over in January. This gives them time to adjust to Troop life, and get some Troop camping under their belt before Summer Camp. Our Webelos meet through the summer, so no issues getting everything accomplished before crossover. The Cubmaster and the Webelos DL, in conjunction with the Scoutmaster, should make the call, not the CC (I am a former CM and current CC of a pack). The CC (and the committee as a whole) job is to support the CM and DL's in running the pack. A meeting of the minds is in order, and the CM and WDL need to inform the CC that

    So did the rule change, recently.. Too many of you have it in your heads that it's 10 1/2. updated : AKDenleader is having problems sleeping too I guess. I posted something similar on my other thread related to this joining issue.. They answered that the book has it stated differently. " Hmmm... so is the scouting.org website wrong, or is this so new a change that the books haven't caught up to the change on the website? Sounds like a clarification by my DE is in order. I would go with what is on the youth application, "Your son can be a Scout if he has completed the fifth g

    How close is he to earning his Arrow of Light? Can it be done by Feb? May? He can cross over without earning AOL as long as he meets the Boy Scout Joining Requirements (Be a boy who is 11 years old, or one who has completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old.) Just remember, once he becomes a Boy Scout, he can no longer work on Cub Scout Rank requirements, so is earning AOL important to him? If he never earns it, and wants to continue in Scouting, and meets the Boy Scout Joining requirement age, then he s
  7. Some DE's will sign up any one regardless if they qualify or not, so that is why the Council Registrar would be the one to talk too, after all they are the one who will enter in the application. My guess is they will have to wait.
  8. If he does not meet the joining requirements, then I do not see how his application will be accepted. I would contact the registrar for your council, not the DE. The registrar will tell you if the application will be accepted or not.
  9. I believe that is up to the 6th One, after they earn 7th they all are move to Sash http://www.scouter.com/forum/uniforms/13035-merit-badges-on-sleeves See Also, page 17: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33066_Section2.pdf No mention of having to move them.
  10. Turn the BSA Mile Swim Patch into a neckerchief slide
  11. While I totally agree with ScoutNut on this, and that was the way I was trained on this subject, look what I found that states the contrary: "Since the goal of this award is for packs to continue through the summer, the pin should match up with the Cub Scout’s last rank, not the one they are working on for the next year." http://www.scouting.org/filestore/advancement_news/512-075_June_July.pdf So, a new Tiger who joins June 1st (rare yes but possible) is not eligible since technically he had no prior rank? As someone I know says often, this is just "foolishment".
  12. Capâ€â€Official navy-blue cap with orange front panel and tiger cub emblem for Tiger Cubs, yellow panel and wolf emblem for Wolf Cub Scouts, blue panel and bear emblem for Bear Cub Scouts. Webelos Scouts wear an olive cap with a plaid panel bearing the Webelos logo. Neckerchiefâ€â€Triangular neckerchief is orange with navy-blue trim for Tiger Cubs, gold with navy-blue trim for Wolf Cub Scouts, light blue with navy-blue trim for Bear Cub Scouts, and plaid for Webelos Scouts. Official BSA neckerchiefs are the only neckerchiefs boys should wear. Packs should not make their own pack necker
  13. If they are not citizens, but are still BSA members, then try this... As an American Scout:), I will do my best to - Be clean in my outdoor manners. Be careful with fire. Be considerate in the outdoors. Be conservation minded.
  14. Some just don't wear the trained patch, but most of the ones I deal with (myself included) do wear the trained patch. As a District Commissioner, I make sure my folks are trained and are given the patch to wear, if they choose. I know of unit leaders who are trained that do not wear the patch as well, but I know they are trained, it does not bother me. Like knots, some like to wear all the bling, and some don't, just a choice.
  15. You are correct basement, and I have read the link completely and I understand it completely. People here though seem to think pack camping is not family camping, that is my point. When my "family" go camping we are not scout camping, but when a pack goes camping it is called "Family" camping by BSA standards, as Packs do things to include the family.

  18. Pack Camping is "Family Camping", no rule broken. "Family camping is an outdoor experience, other than resident camping, that involves Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, or Venturing program elements in overnight settings with two or more family members, including at least one BSA member of that family. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children, and Youth Protection policies apply." http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/gss03.aspx
  19. They should get the Bear pin. They completed wolf, and during the summer can work on Bear requirements (if they went to day camp, they would work on Bear not Wolf, right?). Same deal here. Award them the Bear pin and call it a good summer!
  20. Here is the bottom line, If you are a Cub Pack camping somewhere other than a District or Council Event, you are required to file a tour plan, which requires a Baloo trained person on the trip. Contact your council for exactly what trips they require one for, as different councils have different rules for requiring a tour plan. Remember, any event not deemed official by the council can result in no insurance coverage, and by filing a proper tour plan, you are conducting an official pack event: "This accident and sickness insurance may be provided for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers,
  21. KDD, Sounds like your district folks need re-training. Cub Camping is Family Camping: "Family camping is an outdoor experience, other than resident camping, that involves Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, or Venturing program elements in overnight settings with two or more family members, including at least one BSA member of that family. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children, and Youth Protection policies apply." http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/gss03.aspx and Cub Scout family camping falls into two categories: council-organized family camps and

    Dual roles

    "Might be a Council Rule. Last year, we re-chartered with a CM/DL combo, and a CC/TL combo." Nope, it is a National Rule. From the Adult Application (under Qualification): http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf "No one may register in more than one position in the same unit, except the chartered organization representative (CR) (who can multiple only as the committee chairman (CC) or a committee member (MC)), and the parent coordinator (PC), who may multiple as chartered organization representative."
  25. From the GTA, Section 1. Freedom, clause 3. In no case where a unit is connected with a church or other distinctively religious organization shall members of other denominations or faith be required, because of their membership in the unit, to take part in or observe a religious ceremony distinctly unique to that organization or church. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33088.pdf
