When I was an Assistant Cubmaster, we counted all camping days and =
nights the youth did with the troop since he joined boy scouting =
(including from other troops if he is a transfer, not including cub =
scouts). This does double-count. This was our =
interpretation.Technically, he could say he started the MB when he =
joined scouting (may be stretching it a bit).

We are having a little disagreement in our troop about what camping
days and nights to count for Camping MB, so I figured I'd poll the net
and see how other troops do it.
The crux of the question is when to start counting the days/nights.
Should that include every campout since the the boy joined scouting,
or just those since he started the MB. If it is since starting
scouting, doesn't that mean these trips are being double counted for
the Tenderfoot thru 1st Class ranks? Also, does your troop generally
allow camping not done under the auspices of BSA to count towards that
total and if so under what conditions?
Thanks for your responses, as they will help us make a (hopefully)
reasonable policy so that all of the adults are playing from the same
