--> This weekend he will be attending our O.A. Spring Fellowship, as an ordeal
--> candidate, and was wondering if his time there will count towards his
--> service hours. I am fairly sure that service to the Scouts -- which O.A.
--> work would be -- cannot be counted towards service hours for rank
The Boy Scout Handbook is pretty vague on this, saying only that the
hours must be worked on a project approved by the Scoutmaster. I
interpret that literally, meaning that it is entirely your call as to
whether to allow the ordeal to count as his service hours.
Personally, I would not give my approval to this.
