100 DEGREES OF FROST AWARD
The 100 Degrees of Frost Award is
presented to the Boy Scout,
Varsity Scout, Venturer, or adult
leader who "earns" 100 or more below
freezing points annually between October
lst and May 30th. One point is awarded
for each degree below freezing recorded
during a campout. The degree of temperature
is determined by the "official"
weather bureau station nearest the
campsite; however, a leader's thermometer
reading will be accepted.
Degrees (points) cannot be carried over
to another season!
THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET:
- Eight continuous hours must be
spent between sunset and sunrise
in a lean-to, snow shelter, under
canvas (tent), or in the open.
- No stoves or heaters are permitted
in the tents or shelters.
- Open fires are permitted as long as
they do not constitute a hazard to
the shelter or the surrounding area.
- Scouts and Venturers must be
accompanied at all times by leadership
approved by the Unit Committee.
- Organized District or Council activities
may be used, as long as all
rules are followed. Make-up nights
and backyard camping for those
who miss outings due to illness,
etc., are authorized.
A special 100 Degree Frost Award
patch is available from Council Service
Centers. Unit leaders certify campers
who have met the requirements. The
award may be earned more than once.
