Advancement Activities

Can I get clarification on what type of items are considered activities for Scout advancement? I’m aware regular meetings do not count. But I’ve heard other troops talk that when they conduct their annual Scout fundraiser events, any volunteer event, troop/patrol training outside of normal meetings, camping events, etc. are all considered valid activities for advancement.

That’s more of a policy question than a technical one. The BSA has indicated they want all policy-type questions referred to the individual councils. If your council isn’t able to answer your question, you might take a look at documents like the Guide to Advancement and Advancement News.

As Charley states, this is a council or G2A question. G2A makes it clear that most of these questions are determined by the Scoutmaster with clear reading of the requirement and G2A.
