For Nathan, Jim, Kathie, et al:
From the most recent NATIONAL CAMP SCHOOL PUBLICATION I have (which
I just happen to have today, to copy some material), I have some
selected quotes. I hope it helps.
CAMP PROGRAM AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT (1991)
CAMP MERIT BADGE COUNSELORS
Counselors must be 18 years old and qualified in the subject. Camp
staff members who are qualified in the subject and under the age of
18 may assist the merit badge counselor with instruction.
Each counselor must maintain the exact standards as outlined in the
merit badge requirements -- nothing deleted, nothing added ....
THE COUNCIL ADVANCEMENT COMMITTEE
The procedures for Scout advancement in summer camp should be drawn up
in writing by the Scout executive, camp director, or program director
and such procedures should be approved by the council advancement
committee prior to camp.
While each council will establish its own advancement procedures for
camp.... These procedures should not be followed blindly, they should
be used as a guide.
THE CAMP DIRECTOR
... He will receive from the program director a complete troop
advancement report on a weekly basis.
THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR
... He sees that all merit badge instructors follow a lesson plan.
