848 Policy – Service Hours

Basic criteria:

  1. Not for the scouting organization (i.e., Cubs and BSA do not count and that includes Scout fair, Pinewood derby, Webelos Woods, etc.).
  2. Not part of your normal endeavors (i.e., if your church group does a service as part of their org then no, but if it's a church special project then yes.   Things you do for the CLUMC youth army don't count (normally).
  3. Not getting paid.

This is the normal criterion.  There are extenuating circumstances on others that may be counted.

Helping out with Eagle Projects is one of the best ways to earn service hours.  Campout service projects are also a good method.

Bottom line, all should have SM approval.
