Boy Scout Trail Rank Advancements

Every rank in scouting is reached by accomplishments by the scout. These requirements are age-appropriate activities that help grow and mold the boy into a self-sufficient, confident, able man. Themes run through the requirements from the beginning Tiger to the Eagle. For instance, when a Wolf scout cooks cookies with his mother, that begins to train him to cook for his patrol as a Life scout. And, when a Tiger Cub visits a police station he begins learning how to be a model citizen.

Many scouts and adult leaders are so busy planning and participating in their present program that they don't notice the whole boy scout trail. That is actually fine because the entire trail is laid out and they should be concentrating on the activities at hand. The potential problem is when a leader does not see the value in an activity and decides to reduce the requirements - that cheats the scout later down the trail.

Use these pages to learn the rank requirements for each scouting advancement. Rather than just listing the requirements, we've added helpful ways to meet the requirements for every rank - things we've enjoyed doing that worked for us and others. Of course, we would love to hear your new ideas or suggestions - Contact Us
