Having Served on Camp staff at 7Mtns Boy Scout Camp, in Juanita Valley Council from 1991 Thru 1994 I would have loved to have limits on the number of boys per class. The truth of the matter is though the Scout Masters tend to get "tetchy" if one of their boys can't get into a class since they are only in camp for 1 week normally. So I have taught Canoeing Merit badge with 27 boys in a class and not enough canoes for all of the kids. They same went for Swimming and Rowing as well. I will say that I never passed anyone who couldn't complete all of the requirements though, I always made time in the afternoons even during my break time to insure that everyone got they help they needed in the boats. Ultimately the quality of the instruction all comes down to the staff and the amount of effort they are willing to put into it, while I was there I am proud to say we had a really good staff for the most part.
