The following was sent to me. I've responded as shown, but would
appreciate some GROUP ADVICE.
> Please provide an interpretation of the activities requirement for 1st
>Class. For 10 activities, 3 of which included an overnight campout:
>Does that mean NO MORE THAN 3 of the 10 may be overnight campouts, OR
>AT LEAST 3 must be overnight campouts.
>In other words, if a scout participated in 5 service/activities and 5
>separate overnight campouts, would this suffice (or would only the first
>three overnight campouts count and then the scout would need two more
>activities other than campouts?)

GOOD QUESTION! I'm not sure.
The actual wording is as follows:
3. Since joining, have participated in ten separate
troop/patrol activities (other than troop/patrol
meetings), three of which included camping overnight.
I would interpret it as a MINIMUM of 3 campouts. But I could be wrong.
I'm going to post a copy of this to rec.scouting.usa and to Scouts-L and
see what others think.
