Regarding two adult rule. YES! You will need to change your presentation
on merit badge counselors as of two years ago when the two adult RULE came
into effect. There MUST be two adults at all times - the number of scouts
meeting with a merit badge counselor does not matter (per National).
If there is a charge raised, and only one adult was with the Scout(s) the
National legal department will not cover the volunteer. Also, merit badge
couselors must be registered as such with the local council - this is quite
consistent with the youth protection policy.
Do get yourself a copy of the youth protection guideline booklet - all of
this information and more is in it. Good luck with your course this
