For those looking for another crossover ceramony:
In our area we have a youth camp (years ago it belonged to the local council).
There is creek to cross to get to the fire bowl. The bridge is visible from
the fire bowl seating but is at least 60 yards away. We have used this area
a number of times. We first have the parents and scouts come down front
where the Webelos neckerchief is removed, and the parents present the scouts
witha BSA neckerchief and slide. The Troop's ASPL then leads the new scouts
to the bridge presents them to the troop guide. The troop guide leads them
across the bridge and presents them to the SLP waiting on the other side.
The SPL gives them a handbook and leads them in the Oath and Law.
They then all returned and are greeted with appalls. It involves the parents,
and Boy Scouts. Very little is done by adult leaders except to narrate.
