Ask the Chairman
We have recently moved to another city and someone told me that the the camping
requirement must be fulfilled with only one troop. Do we have to start over the
days and nights of camping?
The days and nights of camping are handled just like the other OA election
eligibility requirements. A Scout doesn't have to re-earn First Class when he
transfer to a new unit, and he doesn't have to restart accumulating nights of
camping from zero.
No one can add extra requirements, but the Scoutmaster is the person that
certifies the eligible members to the election team. If your Scoutmaster is
satisfied with your proof of camping in your old unit then that carries over to
your new unit. If he has concerns, you can get whatever records exist in your
old unit, or perhaps a letter from your old Scoutmaster.
Hope this helps,
