Thanks to all who responded to my querry of summer camp partials. My
question may not have been as clear as I wanted. I'm not talking about
the discussion requirements or the essay type requirements, but about the
catch, clean and cook fish kind of requirements, that are sometimes hard
to duplicate outside camp. Yet the Scout had no proof that has done this
at camp. How does he show he released a fish he had caught, when all he
really still needs to do is learn the various knots to show a counselor?
Also the "in canoe" parts of the canoeing badge may be done at camp, but
the Scout comes home still having to complete the CPR /first aid parts.
How does the canoeing counselor know the Scout can right a capsized canoe?
These are the kind of situations I'd like to know how other troops handle.
