I have been asked this evening by a local
Assistant SM, if I know how long a Scout
has to complete a Merit Badge.
I have checked both of my copies of the BSA
Advancement Policies and Procedures Guidelines
and the Boy Scout Requirements book. Neither
one of them said anything about a time limit for
completing a merit badge.
The Scout in question started Wilderness Survival
Merit Badge in August of '98. He has been trying
off and on ever since to get hold of the merit badge
counselor. He has finally connected and was told
that it had been over a year and was therefore
invalid. He had finished all the requirement but
one, which is now complete.
Does this Scout have to start all over?
