??? Can a waterfront staff at summer camp require Swimming Merit Badge for
Canoeing Merit Badge?
Well, it was not so long ago that Swimming MB WAS required for Canoeing.
However, that has been changed to the First Class Swimming requirements.
You could make an issue of it, if it is a problem. They staff may be
working from old requirements books.
??? Can the staff add to the Merit Badge requirements?
They SHOULD not. But much of the time they do add, and, also take away
