How many of your camps have an international scout as a summer staff member. Last year we had a scout from Taiwan and this year from the Ukraine Both Female.

The last time I went to camp there was a Ukrainian girl running the Archery Range.

We've had them at Camp Tri-Mount for as long as I can remember. Gives the Scouts a great chance to get most (or all) of Cit. World finished. We have 2 coming in this year.

Cleveland Council had a young lady from Korea (maybe Taiwan) on staff last year.

Yes. they also had scouts from Australia and Belize on their Aquatics staffs. The Belize scout is one of 7 in the country who has earned the Queens award - which is their program's highest award. One of the requirements he told us was a 6 day 5 night Wilderness survival trip with only a knife, map and compass and bottle of water. If this was a BSA requirement for Eagle, what do you think the number of completions would be?

We had a girl from Taiwan last year and their wilderness survival was the same as above and was Required for, I believe they use, Eagle. Lets start a petition to model our wilderness after this and make it required. That will weed out your 12 year old Eagles ROTFLMAO
