Boy Scout 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.  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.
