This really isn't a hard requirement for any scout that is following the principles of scouting.
Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures (#33088 - 2007 Printing) Page 23:ynotquilt wrote:Continuing this thread, where does it state that nothing can be added or subtracted from a merit badge or rank advancement requirement? Our troop just informed me that my son's 40+ service hours helping with Cub Scout Day Camp do not count for his Life rank because they benefitted BSA. I want to be able to give them the "chapter and verse" where this "policy" of "no adding or subtracting" from requirements.
Sounds like they're confusing the Service Project requirement for EAGLE which may not involve council property or other BSA activities. There's no such restriction on Second Class, Star, or Life service hours."No council, district, unit, or individual has the authority to add to or subtract from any advancement requirement"
