I have surveyed several scouts in my troop about their thoughts on whether
the merit badge should be given if the boys spent the night under the tent.
Individually every scout said definitely no! Several of them said that it
was so much fun that they would rather get a chance to do it again anyway.
I don't recall who said to ask the boys or the PLC, what they thought, but
with responses like these from the scouts, I think asking the boys is a
great way to go. If the boys feel that they should get the badge now, later
when they look back they may think differently.
