Advancement Update
Scouts working toward Eagle should be sure to click here to check the district website for the latest Path to Eagle Flowchart! Active Scouters will also want to keep an eye out for the very latest Guide to Advancement 2019 (available at the Fickett Scout Shop - be sure it says "2019" on the cover if you buy one!). Finally, the 14th edition of the Scouts BSA handbook is now available, reflecting the new program name, updated Youth Protection guidelines and minor fixes to the 13th edition. Program elements and rank requirements did not change. There is now a boys' and girls' version which only differ in the images - all requirements and page numbers are identical.

  • FREE Credit Card Processing - FREE Shipping - Hassle FREE Scout Rewards
