Trying to find information from
National BSA regarding the logistics of a Lone Scout being allowed to have a charter organization sponsor them and or assistance with fundraising.
I’ve read guide to Lone Scout advancements and have seen that lone scours need a registered adult counselor or guide (often a parent) to help them through the scouting journey.
Interested in knowing what happens to funds raised by a youth that had been in a chartered pack (and not completely used) and then went to an individual lone scout experience. Hopefully if they moved on to a chartered troop those funds would follow them for future scouting activities, trainings, and camps.
Can a charter organization sponsor a lone scout- and manage funds raised by the lone scout to help the lone scout with activities and advancements?
It’s definitely a grey area. (On one hand - they aren’t in a troop so I could understand not getting the benefits of the charter organizational support…… on the other hand- who else other than a parent/counselor is authorized to sponsor a lone scout- since charter groups own the responsibility of supporting the youth under their watch.?? There are compelling elements to both sides.
