I have a U.S. Scout whose father is on military assignment here
joining our group for one year.
Could someone on the SCOUTS-L list advise as to how best to work him
into our Canadian badge system, while still gaining credit for BSA
badges on his return.
My initial thinking is to include him in all of our Achievement Badge
sessions leading towards the Canadian Chief Scout's award (the 14 year
old "equivalent" of Eagle Scout) and to write up a detailed report of
all the skills and qualifications completed.
I would hope this might be accepted at his next U.S. Troop as proof of
Are there any special bureaucratic requirements I should be aware of ?
We will be doing camping, cross-country skiing, canoeing, and sailing
activities thoughout the year.
This young man will be turning 13 in 1995 and is currently a 1st Class
Scout in the U.S. system. His parents are originally from California,
most recent posting being Georgia.
Please send your replies direct to the above E-Mail address, as I am
not a regular subscriber to SCOUTS-L.
Regards and YiS
