I tried posting this once before a week ago, but dont think it made it so
I'll try again.. Sorry if it comes across twice.
I am running into proublems on the guide lines for service projects below
the rank of eagle. the BSA requirements bookstates that "Service projects
shall be meaningful service not normally expected of a Scout as part of his
school, religious, or community activities". It also states that the
scoutmaster approves the project before it is started.
My question is could a boy scout working on cubscout day camp use that
for a service project?
I dont think so, I believe it falls more as a denchief position than a
service project. I dont think that a project helping the scouts (cub or boy)
is what they had in mine with the basic guidelines mentioned..
I could use some more input and ideas on this subject and perhaps a
better set of guidelines..
