Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: MB & Troop Mtgs.
MB & Troop Mtgs.
Wed, 9 Jun 1999 10:15:24 -0400
I am seeking opinions on holding merit badge sessions during troop meetings.
We find it increasingly difficult to motivate scouts 1st class and above to
work on MB's outside of troop meetings. The old jobs, cars, sports problems.
One side of me says this would help them continue to advance.
The other side says it eliminates the idea of a scout contacting a
counselor, setting up meetings, working independantly, etc.
I suppose we would take 40-50 minutes out of a troop meeting for the MB
scouts to go off and work on their stuff, and then work with the scouts who
are Tenderfoot - 1st class.
We have the counselors to run multiple badges so we could have choices.
Thanks in advance!
