Troop 151

Scouting in (and out) of Seattle

Eagle Scout Candidates

This page is to assist our Eagle scout candidates in finishing up their final requirements.

First, let me say, even though you’ll probably ignore this advice, don’t procrastinate! Most boys could easily complete all the requirements for Eagle when still 16 or younger the way that things are structured in Troop 151. Stay in the troop, take leadership roles, go to camp, and plan ahead and get the “harder” merit badges completed early and you’ll end with more time to focus on doing a really awesome Eagle project your last year and not have to worry about all the other merit badges as well. Spend 10 minutes a day on your merit badge work and it’ll all be done before you know it. Think about it!
