Revision as of 19:29, April 9, 2009

Many troops hold an Advancement Campout each year in the early spring after new Webelos have crossed over into the troop. Scouts who are not yet First Class learn from older Scouts. Older Scout gain proficiency as they teach Scout skills and knowledge. Many troops use a troop meeting to plan for the Advancement Campout. Other troop meetings focus on other key skills.

The Advancement Campout teaches Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class skills and can help troops meet their First Class-First Year goal:

Though you can advance at your own pace, active Scouts will usually earn First Class within a year of joining a troop.
Boy Scout Handbook, p. 14

Advancement Campout Methods

  • Patrol method - used for all campouts. Adult do not buy or cook food for the Scouts.
  • Boy-Led - campouts and meetings allow older Scouts to teach. Adults are "armchair quarterbacks" who do not teach.
  • Individual Testing - each Scout is individually tested on each requirement. The instructor is not being tested, each Scout is.
  • Be prepared - plan menus & duty rosters at the Troop Advancement Campout Planning Meeting.
  • Practice - Knots and First Aid are taught at troop meetings leading up to the Advancement Campout.
