As a troop we do a lot of camping most of which is tenting but we do several times do a trip where we sleep in a cabin such as winter camp. In addition, we are fortunate enough to have a cabin of our own that we frequent several times a year where some boys sleep in the cabin and some pitch a tent.
Currently we count these all as “camping trips” and record them in the camping log however as we all know there are several requirements for ranks/awards/merit badges where “sleeping in a tent you pitched” is part of the requirement.
Since the camping log is indiscriminate we have been noting “slept in cabin” in the camping log notes, but that doesn’t stop the reports from simply listing all nights camped.
It would be great if there were a check box/flag/slider in the camping log to designate a cabin trip or “slept in cabin/indoors” or something to that effect so that when running camping log reports those nights would be differentiated. You could have total camping nights listed and then total tent camping nights separate.
