Life Requirement 6


The FCT Coordinators will be attempting to match Star Scouts needing to fulfill Life Requirement 6 with FCT Scouts needing to learn one of the corresponding tasks.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these sessions will take place virtually with one Star Scout teaching the FCT Scouts with an FCT PASM supervising. Once all parties have successfully completed their tasks the PASM will sign off the requirement. Ideally we will keep the number of FCT Scouts per session low (no more than 3 preferably).
Some of the options under the requirement require specialized equipment and or live meetings. Those have been marked out for this purpose.

Sign Up

Star Scouts and FCT Scouts should register their interest here. Times will be coordinated later.
