I discovered the new first aid requirements for the Camping Merit Badgeon the
internet. I knew a scout had a booklet without the requirements. As the MB
counselor, I sent him back to the council office to get a current version with
the updated requirements. The council did not have any books with the new
requirements. Just the old books (pre first aid).
My question. Since the scout started the MB before the revised requirements
went into effect, is it permissible for him to complete the badge under the
Second. Since the council could not provide (even today) the correct booklet,
can anyone starting the MB today just satisfy the requirements in the most
currently available book?
