Orientation is a Scout's introduction to all the steps he or she will have to take if they want to attain Eagle Rank. All Scouts should plan to attend one of these sessions; along with the links on this page, there's lots of useful information that will make the journey less mysterious. And, it's OK if you want to come back again for a refresher session.
We encourage parents and Advisers to come along as well so you can see what lies ahead. Check the calendar for scheduled Orientation sessions.
Preparation for your Orientation session . . .
For the presentation to be useful, you need to do a little homework.
- Download the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook. It's a 26 page document so we don't recommend printing a hard copy. Do a quick read - just enough to be familiar with the document.
- Download the Orientation Workbook Extract - it's eight pages. Either print a hard copy - recommend double-sided printing - or save it to a laptop or mobile device and have it with you for the Orientation session. We will be referring to the content.
- Download and print - hard copy this time - the Project Record & Checklist and The Sweet Sixteen of BSA Safety.
