Minor Modifications to Scouts BSA Rank Requirements

In 2021, all outdoor-related rank advancement requirements were reviewed and realigned based on guidance from the National Outdoor Ethics and Conservation Subcommittee.

Safeguard personal information.
Recording online meetings is not authorized.
Collecting personal information from youth under 13 is not recommended.


More details on each topic are included in the full Digital Safety Guidelines document.

Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t he go.
