Advancements in Scouting, unlike most sporting activities, depends on the personal drive, interest, and motivation of the individual, not whether he can do better than another Scout in accomplishing the requirements for a rank advancement or merit badge.
The advancement program of Scouting provides a forward-moving series of tests. It sets certain standards for passing them. It offers awards to the Scouts who pass the tests in the form of special badges for each Rank or Merit Badge. Achieving the rank of Eagle is the ultimate goal for a Scout. Be sure to check out our Eagles Nest to see the Scouts that have achieved Eagle from our Troop.
“An invaluable step in character training is to put responsibility on the individual.” -Robert Baden-Powell
