2016 RANK REQUIREMENTS

Effective 1/1/2016, the BSA launched new rank requirements for all badges. Scouts already working on a rank prior to this date were given until years end to complete requirements for the badge they were currently working on, but after 12/31/16, they MUST use the new requirements. Click on a rank below to view / print the .pdf of the requirements for that badge.
