Eagle Scout Project Checklists

Looking for copies of your local council's EP approval checklists. Please email to me or post a link to them (not just the council website).

Thanks.

Please continue to send yours to me. I tried to search some of your council web sites to get them, but you must have them hidden.

Of the ones I've received, everyone of them has one or more items that "add to the requirements" or are blantantly against the current ACPP.

Best to communicate that directly to the council advancement chairs. They are the ones that can take action to change things.

Unfortunately the CACs are the ones that sanction this type of stuff. :evil: If they read even the current ACPP, they would know some of the items they are requiring are wrong.

Then I propose that when the new guide is issued an impementation letter is sent to all the councils outlining the changes and reminding the councils to not do what you are seeing.

I believe that is going to be done along with the requirement that all reviewers complete the Reading MB. The number of "Scouters" that ignore current policies is staggering unfortunately. Throw in the helicopter parents and we have madness.

What's a "helicopter parent"? All sorts of amusing images come to mind, but please enlighten us!

This is a parent who is constantly hovering over their little darling and driving the bus on everything the kid does right down to wiping his.... nose. This parent will be writing the ESLSP and will be earning Eagle for their son. They'll be setting up the kid's tent, fluffing the pillow, zipping up the raingear, packing the pack (if not carrying it), and checking the temperature on the marshmallow to make sure it's properly roasted before it goes on the smore.

What a great article! Thank you so much for passing that on. The quote about parents being poor at assessing risk these days is right on!
