Scout participation is a requirement for rank advancement. The requirements is that a scout has to be active 50% of the time in the last 6 months. This is a rolling 6 months so technically if they have been 100% active in the previous 3 months prior to rank advancement then they have met the requirements.
Who to confirm Scout Rank/Patrol/Status information: Allan Lester
Can parent’s sign off on scout requirements? No. Scout should present to his Patrol leader at a Troop/Patrol Meeting or Campout his book to his patrol leader and explain that he has completed that work.
Over the course of the year we have Patrol cooking contests on campouts. These timing of these contests are decided by the PLC before a campout.If your Scout needs to satisfy a cooking requirement for Rank Advancement he should talk to his patrol leader and work out with him a time to meet that requirement. This can be done either during a patrol meeting or a campout.
