Campouts, Service Hours, and Leadership Positions
Throughout the ranks of Scouting, there are requirements for participation in Campouts, completing Service Hours and holding leadership positions. Scouts need to keep track of their progress. The Scouts BSA Handbook for Boys has a section right after the rank requirements containing a Leadership & Training Log, a Camping Log and a Service Log. Each log has a column for a Scoutmaster or adult leader signature. Scouts should obtain signatures from adults in attendance at the events. It is highly recommended that every Scout record their campouts, service hours, and leadership positions in these logs.
Scouts should see the Troop Calendar for upcoming campouts and service hour opportunities; and talk to the Scoutmaster or current Senior Patrol Leader (S.P.L.) about leadership positions.
