'Under the auspices of BSA'

Recommended Posts

If a scout has notified his SM or merit badge counselor that he wants to take a merit badge and work toward that merit badge and the approval is given i would think that is the Auspice of the BSA. Am I wrong?

 

Other wise how cana scout do the individual requirement that are needed for merit badges. For example physical fitness.

thanks....

 

personally I would not count a non scouting camping trip i.e. camping with me and his sister for instance as a night for his merit badge or other award. I would use that time to give him experience with his firestarter.

For physical fitness wihich he has partial and is currently doing his 12 week schedule I have suggested that he work with his Sensei to document that and other requirements of the physical fitness badge.

Definitely your boy should proceed has he planned with his counselor. The charting really only needs to be done on the scout's honor, but it never hurts to have a coach help.

 

And while you're at it, ask the Sensei if he would like to be a merit badge counselor. Maybe not for your son -- who sounds like he already has another counselor -- but for other boys in your district. It might be mutually beneficial to have a scout go to the dojo.
