So. By those standards stated the hiking, cycling, and backpacking
merit badges must be accomplished with one year? Hiking requires 6 long
hikes. That typically translates to 6 campouts within a year?
I agree that the longer a boy waits, the more he forgets. I personally,
will never again pass a boy on a Cit in the Nation merit badge if he
can't remember the three branches of gov't, even if the previous
counselor signed off that requirement.
I do think that you need to look at each merit badge before setting a
time limit other than their 18th birthday.
