Tenderfoot is the first rank you will earn as a Boy Scout. The requirements
offer a taste of the great adventures awaiting you in Scouting, and can give you
the basic skills you'll need to begin taking part in those adventures. There is
a lot of challenge in earning the Tenderfoot badge, and you might soon find
yourself doing things you had only dreamed about before.
Second Class Scout
"THE SKILLS I'M LEARNING ARE GREAT!" says a Scout working on his Second Class
badge. "I'm going on adventures with my patrol and troop, and I'm having lots of
With the Tenderfoot requirements behind you, you're ready to move ahead
toward Second Class. You're about to learn how to use a map and compass. Soon
you will know new ways to observe wildlife, and you'll understand when and how
to build a campfire.
You'll master the safe use of pocketknives and other woods tools, go on more
campouts, take part in troop and patrol activities, and add to your knowledge of
first aid. Add swimming and a service project, and you will be well on your way
to wearing a Second Class award.
First Class Scout
READY FOR LOTS MORE HIKING AND CAMPING? Want to cook outdoors, practice first
aid, identify native plants, and lash together structures? All to that and more
await you on the trail to First Class.
Becoming a First Class Scout also prepares you to be more of a leader in your
patrol, your troop, and your community. People will expect more of you, and you
will expect more of yourself.
More time in the outdoors, more responsibilities, more knowledge of
Scouting's skills - that's what becoming a First Class Scout is all about. A
good place to begin is by getting out a map and compass and increasing your
knowledge of how to find your way.
The trail to Eagle leads through the ranks of Star Scout and Life Scout - an
exciting pathway that will challenge you, test you, and open many doors to new
ideas and opportunities. Building on the knowledge and experience you gained in
becoming a First Class Scout, the requirements for Star and Life offer plenty of
freedom in choosing the direction your interests take you, and many options for
achieving each higher rank. The requirements also emphasize the roles that the
Scout Oath and Law play in your life, and the importance of service to your
Scout troop and to others.
"The Star, Life, and Eagle Ranks are respectively the highest steps in Scout
Advancement. Those who attain these honors, of necessity, should be real Scouts,
representative Scouts - Scouts on the inside as well as on the outside."
Handbook for Boys, 3rd Edition, 1927
THE FIRST Boy Scout Handbook described anyone worthy of the Eagle Scout Award
as "the all-round perfect scout." That is a very demanding standard indeed, and
a worthy goal. Striving to become an Eagle Scout will require your best efforts
to master the skills of leadership, service, and outdoor know-how, and to
practice good citizenship and ethical behavior of the highest order. The long
trail to Eagle is full of opportunities for you to learn, to lead, to listen,
and to teach. Along the way and throughout your life, the rewards from earning
the Eagle Scout Award will be great.
