A Reminder that all Boy Scouts start using the “new” Boy Scout requirements Jan 1, 2017.

Posted on Dec 17 2016 - 3:54pm

Is there a deadline for using the “old” requirements?

Yes. Dec. 31, 2016, is the last day to sign off on requirements using the old requirements.

So what if a youth is partially done with a rank on Dec. 31, 2016?

He would not need to “start over” and repeat all of the requirements for that rank. He must only complete new requirements and any new elements of requirements.
If the wording of a completed rank requirement has not changed and that requirement was signed off on or prior to Dec. 31, 2016, the approval should be transferred to the corresponding new requirements.

For Tenderfoot through First Class ranks, this may include approvals that were previously listed in a different rank.

World Conservation Award has new requirements, effective immediately

The BSA National Conservation and Environment Task Force has announced new requirements for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing/Sea Scout versions of the World Conservation Award. The new requirements, which are now in effect, can be found at this link.

Whether you know the World Conservation Award as the “panda patch” or as the award that encourages Scouts and Venturers to think globally and act locally to improve and conserve our environment, there’s something you need to know.

The new requirements reflect the recent changes to the Cub Scout advancement program and the addition of the Eagle-required Sustainability merit badge in the Boy Scout program.

Modifications to Cub Scout program give Den Leaders more flexibility

Posted on Dec 2 2016 - 6:25pm

The Boy Scouts of America has announced modifications to Cub Scouting that make the program more flexible for busy parents, Den Leaders and Cubmasters.

The BSA gathered feedback from Den Leaders who had delivered the new Cub Scouting program for a year. What they learned was that some Den Leaders had difficulty fitting into their program year all of the adventures required for advancement. This resulted in boys not advancing. After a thoughtful and deliberate review, the BSA has released some modifications to address this concern.
