Are you a merit badge counselor, scout, or leader looking for additional information on our troop-specific process?

In an effort to streamline and provide a transparent Troop-specific process for handling and tracking earned achievements, our Troop has implemented an Advancements Guideline process. Our Troop process is a supplemental aid to the Scouts BSA “Guide to Advancements” as well as many other documents related to Advancements and Merit Badges.

You can find our Troop process here:

As a reminder, our Scouts (the youth member) should initiate the request for a merit badge. The recommended process for starting a merit badge as provided in the Guide to Advancements is found below.
