Jameson's Path to Eagle Scout

Jameson Lee has decided that he wants to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. This page tracks his progress towards that goal.

Scouts BSA has seven ranks: Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life and Eagle. "NOTE: Must earn a total of 21 merit badges (10 more than required for the Life rank), including these 13 merit badges: (a) First Aid, (b) Citizenship in the Community, (c) Citizenship in the Nation, (d) Citizenship in the World, (e) Communication, (f) Cooking, (g) Personal Fitness, (h) Emergency Preparedness OR Lifesaving, (i) Environmental Science OR Sustainability, (j) Personal Management, (k) Swimming OR Hiking OR Cycling, (l) Camping, and (m) Family Life. You must choose only one of the merit badges listed in categories h, i, and k. Any additional merit badge(s) earned in those categories may be counted as one of your eight optional merit badges used to make your total of 21."

Eagle Scout Rank Requirements 2019 / The Eagle Scout Rank / Eagle Scout Schedule

"An Eagle Scout applicant must amass 21 or more badges, create and complete an Eagle project, write several essays, request five recommendation letters, compile an application binder, and undergo an Eagle board of review before their application is approved at the national level. The process typically takes several years, with the most intense and time-consuming aspects coming in the last three to six months."
