ADVANCEMENTS


When it comes to advancing in Scouting, follow the Scout Motto and "Be Prepared." It will carry you far. Here's some other hints:

The Scout Handbook should be brought to each meeting and camping activities. Keep it safe, as the Book is fragile, and it holds your Scouting life within its pages! Be sure to get activities and/or requirements signed off as soon as possible.

Scouts are responsible for earning merit badges required for advancement. Our leadership had a list of Merit Badge Counselors in our area. Please remember, it is necessary to first obtain a blue card from the Scoutmaster or Advancement Chairperson before contacting any Merit Badge Counselor and/or beginning any merit badge work. The blue card is your permission to work on that Merit Badge. The Scout is to be the only one to contact any Merit Badge Counselor.

It is very important to keep the completed Merit Badge blue cards. Plastic "Baseball Card" holders work well to keep them all together. Also, remember to write in the margins of the Scout Handbook any Scout activities done- service projects, troop activities, hikes, camps, etc. This will help in keeping track of hours for advancement, as well as Eagle records.
