As Patrol Leader you are expected to attend a majority, if not all, camping trips and meetings. Troop 101 attends Summer Camp each year and all Patrol Leaders attendance at Summer Camp is Mandatory.
Why is attendance so important? Summer Camp is the culmination of everything we do all year long; every meeting; every PLC; and every camping trip. You have been training as a Leader, as a Patrol Leader, all year for Summer Camp. Your Patrol has been working as a team all year. At Summer Camp all of that hard work comes together.
Removal of a Patrol Leader
A Scout may be removed from his Position of Responsibility by the Scoutmaster if he fails to live by the Scout Oath and Law or if attendance becomes an issue.
