Advancement

We are proud of our Scouts and their achievements of rank advancements.   

Overview

Our advancement co-chairs are Mrs. and Mrs. Everson.  Scouts may email them to request a Board of Review.  Scouts should turn in completed merit badge blue cards in order to have them recorded and awarded.

General Rules of Advancement

  • requirements must be completed as written.  They may not be amended or abridged.
  • Scouts should be prepared to answer questions when asking for a requirement to be signed-off.
  • Scouts must allow time for these questions when asking for a sign-off.
  • Scouts must schedule an appointment for Scoutmaster Conferences with the Scoutmaster or any trained Assistant Scoutmaster.  Leadership time must be signed off by the Scoutmaster, Brian Bowman.
  • Only registered and trained Scoutmasters (including assistant ones) and qualified senior Scouts may sign off on rank requirements.
  • Only Registered Merit Badge Councilors may sign off on merit badge requirements.

Guidelines

  • Scouts may work on advancements as they like.
  • Parents should not push scouts and turn them off.
  • Parents should encourage, remind, and facilitate.
  • It would be good for scouts to make First Class by 12 months from joining though some Scouts take 18 months or more.
  • Ranks must be earned in order.
  • Achievements may be earned in any order, though some have prerequisites and time factors.
  • Requirements may not be altered, however there is provision for the disabled.
  • Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters, and qualified senior Scouts sign off on advancements.

It is preferred that Scoutmasters not sign off their own children unless it is part of a larger group learning experience or a matter-of-fact advancement.

Merit Badges

  • Scoutmaster approval is required prior to a Scout working on a merit badge.
  • Merit Badges are taught and signed off by merit badge counselors who are registered as such.
  • Bluecards are the official record of merit badge requirement completion with the exception of summer camps that use group listings.
  • Forms are available to register as a merit badge counselor.
  • Merit badges must be offered to more than one's own son.
  • Merit badges are secondary priority to attaining First Class rank.
