  • Download Memorandum from the Minsi Trails Council Advancement Committee:
  • Information Regarding Rank Advancement (17 year old Life Scouts) & (COVID-19).  

  • The Eagle Scout required "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" program is being updated and will be called "Citizenship in Society."  A new merit badge is expected to be available late November (2021) with the merit badge pamphlet to be moved to an online only format. Until further notice, all Scouts working on the Eagle Scout Rank should continue to use current rank requirements.  Once the Eagle-required "Citizenship in Society" merit badge is introduced, Scouts in the process of earning the rank of Eagle Scout will be given adequate time to earn it.
