I am expecting a youth to join my Troop in June. He will be new to scouting. Once school starts up in the fall, the family will be moving to another Council. Next summer, they will be back with me and repeat ad infinitum. It is a job thing for one of the parents.
My Troop uses Scoutbook, and I plan on tracking him with it. What if the other Troop doesn’t? What should I tell him and the parents to expect when they move? What is likely to be the best option for the situation?
I expect that transferring the scout and volunteers between Councils a couple times per year will result in problems and is a hassle. How would the Council fees be addressed?
What complications would one expect with the youth being a multiple in Troops across Councils? What would be the policy for Council fees?
Is there another option that is better? I’ve thought of other ideas, but not sure if they would be viable.
