BSA Announces Temporary Eagle Extension For First-Time Members Entering Scouts BSA

On February 1, 2019, the Boy Scouts of America will begin admitting girls into Scouts BSA. One of the characteristics of Scouting—for over a hundred years—is that no matter when you join, however long you stay, or the rank you attain, the Scouting experience prepares you for life. And for some, the pinnacle of their Scouting experience is achieving the highest rank of Eagle Scout. The policies of the BSA indicate that, except in extraordinary circumstances, a youth desiring to achieve the rank of Eagle must do so before the youth’s 18th birthday. This will continue to be our policy. ......
 
IMPORTANT: Online Youth Protection Update

For example, if a leader had completed one, two, or three of the four modules, but had not completed all four, their completed modules will be erased and they will have to start over again to complete all four required modules. You must have completed all ......
 
Get your top 10 questions about Scouts BSA answered right here

There’s enthusiasm for the launch of Scouts BSA everywhere you look. You see it on social media, where young people are saying, #ScoutMeIn. You see it on the news as reporters highlight the BSA’s commitment to the whole family. And you see it in all 50 states, with new Scouts BSA troops for girls forming from coast to coast. As with anything new, there’s bound to be some questions. The BSA has covered almost all of them on the Family Scouting page (look for the link marked “FAQ”). But today I thought I’d extract the top 10 questions I’ve seen from ......
 
My New Scout Uniform

It was time to buy a new Scout uniform. The one I have been using I have probably been wearing for ten years. The sleeves are starting to fray at the edges. Some of the patches are coming loose. The worse problem with the shirt is that it seems to be shrinking. It was fine when I bought it but during the last couple years it just does not fit as well any more. I just don’t understand it. So I bought a new uniform shirt along with a new batch of patches. I did not want ......

Boy Scout Council Shoulder Patch Sorting And Cataloging

http://www.scoutpatchcollectors.com When you have almost 2, 000 council shoulder patches sorted out alphabetically on a table that's a great time to film a video! But what would make this video interesting is instead use that as a backdrop to walk through the history of cataloging shoulder patches. I start with Bill Price books, move through Prince Watkins books and basically just cover the history of reference books in this niche. Along the way I drop some opinions on how OA collectors catalog their patches differently. Maybe my favorite part of the video is using the Delman books to show how ......
