With the new year comes many new opportunities and challenges to face. We will face these challenges and take advantage of these opportunities with the help of a new 13th Edition of the Boy Scout Handbook. With the new edition of the Boy Scout Handbook come updated rank requirements and program changes. The chart below illustrates how Scouts should use the new rank requirements. If you need the new rank requirements you can print out the PDF file at the bottom of the page and attach it to your current book, or you can pick up the 13th Edition of the Boy Scout Handbook at the local Scout Shop or online at If you have questions about the new Rank Requirements or program changes for 2016 please check out the program updates page for the BSA.
