A Scout will earn “Chits” or certificates for carrying a knife, tending a fire or being allowed to use electronics. The Scout needs to have these cards on them when carrying any knife, starting/tending a fire, or bringing a cell phone to meetings and and outings.
From experience, the Scout usually carries these in his pocket. The cards will get wet from being in the rain, swimming, sweating, or washed in the laundry. Laminate the Totin’ Chip and Fireman’s Chit cards. This will make them last a lot longer.
Note: Once a scout is allowed to carry an electronic device, they should NOT be using them to call home and can be taken away by a leader if they are proving distracting.
