1. We withold awards given to the scouts based on camp inspections (Our
scouts will do the work even if one will not join in.)
2. We sit them down and explain that we are all on the same team and that
if that scout refuses to be part of the team then we can accomadate that
3. For the most parts we leave this to the PLC except in dire cases as
mentioned in 4.
4. When a scout has decided to not be part of the team (has never happend)
or displays conduct unbecoming (this did happen when a scout threatened an
adult leader from another troop with a sharp stick) then parents are called
and informed that they must pick up their child.
5. We don't punish, we strive in enhance ones desire to be part of a
co-operative team. Points are earned for attendance, uniform, and attitude
at the weekly meeting. It takes so many points to go on an outing. Few
for a day activity, more for an overnighter and a whole lot for our annual
deep freeze in the sierra mountains.
