Out of Council Camping Data Collection

If your Scouts BSA troop camped at an out-of-council camp, that council should have reported the following to your council no later than August 31st. However that may not always happen.

  • Council and name of council camp where troop camped
  • Troop number and district
  • Number of youth camping
  • Number of adults camping
  • The date of the camping

The “Out of Council Camping Report” form (date unknown, obsolete)

  • N=neeeds “Type of Camping”
  • does not record how long the troop was camping. “Date” column need to be expanded to two columns: “Start Date” and “End Date”
  • need a “B/G” column following the “Troop #” column.
  • needs “Boy Scouts” changed to :“Scouts”

Sea Scouts BSA reporting

Where is the “super activity/long cruise” defined. I suspect the long cruise is reported if it has enough days and night. There may have been some earlier discussion about sleeping onboard and sleeping ashore (camping)
