Double Check! Have you accounted for every single one of your Patrol’s Scouts on the above List? “No” is NOT an acceptable answer! If a Scout is missing from the planning session(s), you MUST call him immediately and determine his status!

Once you have completed your Patrol Status List, inform the SPL of the your results. If your Patrol is going to be short of experienced Scout help, make sure the SPL is aware of that fact. Once the SPL has discussed the campout with each Patrol Leader, he will inform you of which non-Patrol Senior Scouts and Adult Leaders will be assigned to your Patrol.

Names of non-Patrol Senior Scouts and Adult Leaders Assigned to your Patrol by the SPL:
1) ___________________________ 4) ______________________________
2) ___________________________ 5) ______________________________

Patrol Leaders for this Campout – Note! – Must be Definitely Attending the Campout! If your Patrol has no experienced Scouts attending, you may use an assigned Senior Scout as the Acting Patrol Leader.

Junior Scout Advancement

For all Scouts below First Class who are attending this campout, list the top four OUTDOOR requirements they need to advance to their next rank. Please write out the Requirement (for example, write out “Totin Chip” or “Useful Camp Gadget,” not “2nd # 4a” or “TF # 6.”) If specialized equipment is needed (e.g., for map and compass, Totin’ Chip or the First Class Practical Exam), make sure that: (A) the Scout involved is aware of what he needs to bring to the campout; and (B) the SM (or ASM in charge) is aware of what the Troop needs to bring to the campout. All Junior Scouts attempting to advance should be encouraged to bring their Scout Handbooks on any “car-campout.”
