Adding 2� here... I have never heard of AB "counselors" either. Unlike
merit badges, which are done primarily outside troop meetings, activity
pins *are* the meeting program for Webelos.
In my Webelos den, we draw on lots of outside people, but they present
topics to the den as a whole, not to individual Scouts. Since it's a
den meeting, even though the meeting may be at a car repair shop, the
local park, or some other place, 2-deep is always present. Webelos may
work on some requirements at home (such as researching a flag, or
discussing drugs with a parent), but generally there would be no need
for an individual Webelos Scout to call on an outside counselor for
requirements that would be done at home.
