Frequently Asked Questions

A Scout who recently joined my troop camped a lot in his previous troop. Should that camping be counted when deciding if he can be listed on the election ballot for my troop’s unit election?
Yes. All camping done by a Scout while registered with a troop or team counts towards the camping portion of the membership qualifications, as long as the camping was within the last two years.

It is most important that the Scoutmaster or Varsity Team Coach knows about these additional camping nights so that they can count toward OA eligibility. Ultimately, the unit leader makes the decision for OA eligibility. If you are not sure about your eligibility when it is time for an election, have a discussion with that unit leader. Since a unit can hold an election only 1 time a year, waiting until after the election is too late.
