New BSA Scout Requirements

Scouting LogoAs of December 31, 2016, the grace period for finishing up ranks you were working on will end.  As of January 1, 2017,  you MUST do the requirements in the new scout book.  Carn, Watermelons and Skywings, you are already doing new book requirements, so this doesn’t apply to you.  All other patrols if you are mid rank, and you didn’t start that rank with the new requirements, you will be responsible for the new book reqs.  Many of you have already done this as you came in for your Board of Reviews, and we provided the next rank info to you.  You are not required to buy a new book. The pages you can print out and staple in existing book can be found at:

Don’t panic- if you have done all your requirements in 2016 and are simply waiting to do a SM conference and Board of Review, you won’t be penalized when these happen in early 2017.  All other questions come see Traci, Kelly, or Shannon at a meeting. (Star, Life, and Eagle reqs didn’t change much, mostly wording was added.  You will still need the new pages in your book)
