Rank Advancement Tips

The first 12-24 months of your time as member of Troop 28 is a great time to learn what scouting is all about. During this time, scouts can work on the skills required for advancement from a new scout to First Class. Many of these skills are life skills including camping safety,

While scouts can begin working on merit badges at any time after they join BSA, merit badges are only required for rank advancement after the scout has achieved First Class rank. Between First Class and Eagle, scouts are expected to serve in a variety of youth leadership roles, earn 13 merit badges from an “Eagle-required” list as well as several other elective badges. These scouts are expected to share their knowledge with younger scouts and to serve as role models in the troop an the community. Achieving Eagle, the highest rank in Scouting, also requires significant additional effort to complete a Council-sanctioned Eagle service project.
