Is there an effective date when this can be earned? The old system allowed one to go back to 1991.

Where does the patch go on the uniform?

Matt -- it is a temporary patch, so it goes on the right pocket.

The Old Patch was able to be earned by the Scouter Scout Leader.(Currently Doing) Will there be an Option with the new one for a Scout leader to earn this?

None of the forms or BSA information mention adults earning the new awards.

How is camping defined? Is it tent camping only, or is cabin and lean-to included?
If someone could refer me to a definitive reference in the scout lit I'd appreciate it.

You won't find it defined. Any camping that your unit wants to count is allowed. The application just requires your unit leader's signature. If s/he says a hotel is 'camping' and signs it, then it counts.
