This page is dedicated to all the young men getting started on their Eagle Projects. You can find forms, applications, help on the menu to the left and ideas for projects below.  Be sure to check back often for new updates!

 

Eagle Application:

As of January 1, 2016, the National office has issued a new printing of the Eagle Application. None of the requirements have changed, but the format of the second page does have a slight change. Please make sure you are using the most up-to-date application and workbook so your information is correct and current.

          

Eagle Workbook:

If you are using a 2014 or older version of the Eagle Workbook, please transfer your information over to the current version (October 2015). (found on our website under Advancement/Eagle Information) Thank you.

 

Eagle Packet update:

The Eagle Packet has been updated. If you have had the application, packet  and workbook for a while, be sure to get back on the Council Website (wccbsa.org, ‘Advancement’, then ‘Eagle Information’) and print off / use the most current ones. They are updated on a regular basis and you are responsible to have and use the most current information.

Reporting Eagle Service Project Hours

Once your Eagle Service Project has been completed, take a moment to log the total hours everyone worked to help you with Journey To Excellence.  You will need to contact your Scoutmaster or the Council Office for the Unit ID number.  Before you login, figure out the number of people who helped and the number of hours each person volunteered.  You will enter this information online under Journey To Excellence, Service Hours Website. Complete instructions for using the Service Hours Website can be found here.
