In East Texas Area Council, the Polar Bear Award was for camping in
temperature 32 degrees or less.
In National Capital Area Council, the temperature is 0 degrees.
Now Jim has added two more variations. It would appear that this is
a locally defined award based on what is considered adverse temperature
for a specific locality.
We were fairly lax about the award in Texas. The troop would set out a
small tin of water (preferably in an area where the wind-chill is low).
If, by morning, the SM observes ice in the tin, the award is granted.
