EAGLE SCOUT

Advancement

The Eagle Scout Award is the highest rank a boy can achieve in Scouting. A boy who has earned the Eagle badge will have all of the fundamental outdoor skills and be proficient in camping, hiking, cooking and first aid. He will have earned at least 21 merit badges that symbolize knowledge and achievement. He will also have help leadership positions and participated in numerous community service projects, one of which her personally planned and directed. More important, the lessons of discipline, character and service learned in earning this highest honor last a lifetime.

LIFE TO EAGLE - FROM THE BEGINNING

In order to advance to the rank of Eagle, a Life Scout must complete all seven requirements of the Eagle rank as outlined in the Scout Handbook and listed below.  The last two requirements are completed after the first five are done.

  1. Be active in your unit

  2. Show Scout spirit

  3. Complete 21 merit badges

  4. Hold a position of responsibility in your unit for at least 6 months

  5. Plan, develop, and provide leadership to others in a service project

  6. Participate in a Scoutmaster conference

  7. Pass the Board of Review.

Following these steps and the completion of the other requirements, a Scout will complete a Board of Review, then they are entitled to recognition for their efforts in a Court of Honor hosted by the unit.

They have plans and many phases and this could yield a number of turnkey projects for interested scouts. Ready to develop a tire wall on the hill at the east end of the basketball court. They are currently working on tire donations and will need lots of shovels and helpers to dig out the area.
