A boy is eligible to become a Scout after completing specific requirements.
Scouts advance by ranks: Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. Eagle Scouts can continue their advancement trail by earning Eagle Palms.
Additionally, Scouts earn merit badges; there are over 100 badges currently offered. One of the best places to find out about merit badges is at meritbadge.org. Mr. D's Merit Badge Review page provides Scouts with a rough idea of the level of effort required to complete a given merit badge. Always consult the merit badge booklet for the most current and detailed information.
This is a list of currently offered badges; the badges that have white borders are required to earn the rank of Eagle.
Contact the Scoutmaster before starting any merit badge. He'll give you a signed blue card and help you find a counselor to work with you.
