    Camps Where SCOUTS Cook Meals

    And the advantage of Liberty is not having to put up with songs, skits, announcements and waiting to be dismissed.

    Sea Shell necklace

    It shouldn’t be worn. The insignia for completing Scoutmaster Specific training is the “trained” patch.

    Eagle Workbook questions

    There is no requirement that the Scout type it. As long as he wrote legibly in the workbook it is acceptable.

    The youth religious emblem square knot was introduced in 1971, the adult one in 1973.

    Adult Religious Service Award

    For Catholics the adult religious emblem knot is used to represent the St George Emblem alone. So it sounds like they simply gave you the knot as an award which is not a proper use of the knot given there are several patches the National Committee provides for such a purpose.

    End of Varsity Scouts

    Did anyone besides LDS charter Varsity Scout teams?
  14. The NCCS does have episcopal oversight and they are the official representation of the USCCB to the BSA. They do have the authority to state the Church's position as it is the only position they have. The bishops give them their position. Now the USCCB is large and individual bishops may not agree with the majority position and opt to disassociate their parishes from chartering units as we see in North Dakota. As long as the BSA honors its position to allow Catholic COs to choose leaders according to Church teaching I don't see any problem. Deacon Lance
