Frequently Asked Questions

A Scout in my troop is also registered in a Venturing crew. Can camping trips with the crew count towards the camping requirement?
Since the Scout is registered with the troop, and the camping with the crew is “under the auspices of the BSA,” these camping trips while the youth member is also a Boy Scout can count towards the camping requirement.

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.
