Putting Boy Scouts on a Transcript

When thinking about putting boy scouts on your transcript, it helps to think about the millions of hours you spend doing those activities.  If you consider that PE only requires roughly 150 hours of his boy scouts experience, and the usual boy scout may spend over 300 hours..... you have PLENTY of hours to call some of them PE and other hours extra curricular without double dipping.

But look at it from another perspective.  I took choir in high school.  Choir was on my transcript and I got a credit for it, but Choir was also listed in my activities list. My friends in Yearbook were the same way - it was a journalism credit AND a yearbook activity.  The football team members got a PE credit AND they had varsity football on their activities. It's OK to put things as both an activity and a subject if it's really both.  It's important not to do double-dipping for credits, but listing them as a credit and an activity is fine.  Boy scouts is a wonderful experience to put on your transcript for a class and an activity!

My son has been in Boy Scouts for over 2.5 years and is about to get his Eagle. Thankfully, I do not yet have to figure out how to write in the Eagle part of it on the transcript, but wondering what we should title it if we use scouts as part of the PE credits?

Thanks. My son is in Royal Rangers. It is simialr to Boy Scouts in some ways, but it is through our church. Men work with the boys teaching them many skills they can use later in life, and it is mixed in with Bible Study.
I had not thought of using is in his transcript.
