REMOVING THE BOY FROM THE PACK IS TOO SEVERE, especially if thei is a
first offense. certinaly disciplinary action MUST be taken, however The
#1 thing that most of the list is missing are the VIOLATIONS of BSA
policy regarding Cubs and Camping.
Let me list a few of the ones I sent via private post.
#1 When camping no cub may camp unless he has a parent or guardian
This assumes that the adult will be involved in the activities
with the cubs.
#2 When camping The Leader in charge is the WEBELOS leader.
This is the only position in Pack leadership that recieves
Age characteristics, camp activities, rules of camping, how to
plan a camp out,
how to plan activities for camp etc.
I am sure that if these two policies had been followed either the problem
would not have occured
or it would not have become an issue.
Remember in the origional post it was stated that the CM was not present,
and the CC was in charge.
LEadership of the pack defaults not from the CM to the CC That leader has
no youth training in his training at all.
Pack leadership defaults as follows
CM ->ACM->DL or WDL-> ADL
PLease note that the CC leads only the Committee no other part of the
pack. He/SHE is not trained for it.
