Welcome to the Firecrafter Historical Center

The High Standards of Firecrafter

The first three camp ranks all have the same first requirement: Demonstrate the high standards of Firecrafter in personal attitude and example, showing respect for your fellow campers and your environment.

This requirement is the most important of all the requirements, not something that is signed when all other requirements are complete. This requirement asks Firecrafters to seriously judge candidates on these points. Firecrafter candidates receive a more sever judging than Woodsman candidates, and likewise woodsman candidates receive a more serious judging than Camper candidates. In other words, candidates are judged in relationship to their age and Scouting experience. Yet the points for this judgement are the same for all camp ranks. The candidates will be told of problem areas in a constructive manner so that they may improve. They are attempting to do their best to meet these requirements.
