Boy Scout Advancement

Boy Scouting provides a series of tasks and steps, which a boy must overcome to progress through the advancement method. The Boy Scout plans his advancement and progresses at his own pace as he meets each challenge. The Boy Scout is rewarded for each achievement, which helps him gain self-confidence. The steps in the advancement system help a Boy Scout grow in self-reliance and in the ability to help others.

A variety of opportunities are available to Boy Scouts, including outdoor high adventure, camping excursions, lifesaving, first aid and personal fitness challenges. It is within this program, that a Scout can work toward his Eagle Scout award - which is deemed the highlight of most boys' Scouting careers.
