Possibly true, and I hope that was it. We try to run them in the same area of
camp on the same weekend, too...it's especially valuable for the BALOO folks
to wander into the IOLS campsite and see the dutch ovens, the tents, the
different lanterns, and so forth, and talk to the other level leaders over lunch
about gear, for example. And we include the OWL and the IOLS leaders in the
Sunday Scouts Own, of course.
The person who teaches Scout first aid requirements can also do the H&S
section for BALOO and the Readyman pin for OWL...if we coordinate the schedule so
she can get to all three, LOL.
The person who teaches fire can do them all at once if she says to the BALOO
and OWL folks, "This is how YOU do a fire," and then turns to the Scout folks
and says, "This is how you TEACH THE BOYS how to do a fire." All three have
different presentations on campfire (as opposed to building a campfire), so this
isn't the time to talk about that.
