The actual requirement states
"After registration with a troop or team, have experienced 15 days and
nights of Boy Scout camping during the two-year period prior to the
election. The 15 days and nights must include one , but no more than one,
long-term camp consisting of six consecutive days and five nights of
residents camping, approved and under the auspices and standards of the Boy
Scouts of America. The Balance of the camping must be overnight, weekends,
or other short-term camps."

The requirement does require that only ONE long term camp be
counted. Going to 2 yrs. of Summer Camp 6days/5nights does not count as
12days/10 night. You can count one years worth of summer camp and the
rest is shourt term. Not having my Guide to Officers and Advisors on
hand, I can not tell you what the exct definition of short term is.
