Trail to Eagle
The trail to Eagle Scout requires commitment and planning. As a Life Scout, you are just one step away from youth’s most significant accomplishment and honor.
There are procedures to be followed along the way. Below is some information to help you do everything right.
Eagle Scout Applications
It is necessary to use the 2021 version of the Eagle Scout Application and Workbook. By using these fillable documents, a clear and legible document is produced; thus, making it easy for the staff reviewing the paperwork as well as the people conducting the Board of Review. When the Eagle Scout candidate comes into the Council Office to tum in their paperwork, it is permissible for the parent(s) to enter the building with their child. However, the parent(s) should remain silent when their child is making the presentation of their workbook and describing their Eagle project. This is not the parent’s Eagle award; it is the Scout’s.
We look forward to seeing all Scouts achieve this great honor.
