Golden Empire Council, Boy Scouts of AmericaScouting at HomeEagle Scout Application Process During our Office Closure

Eagle Application Submission

Eagle Application Submission

Application Submission

If you have a Scout ready for the Eagle Application process please see below for how these will be handled as long as the Council Office is closed. We will still be processing Eagle Applications, it just may take a little longer.

When you are ready to submit your Eagle Application contact your Unit's Eagle Scout Advisor or Leader. After they have reviewed your application, contact your districts Advancement Committee Eagle Advisor.

A copy should be made of the application; service project workbook; the Scout’s statement of ambitions and life purpose; and listing of positions, honors, and awards. There is no requirement that the application must be completed or submitted before the 18th birthday.

Verifies Application and Board of Review Scheduled

Everything is checked against council records. If everything is correct, the council provides a verification signature, files a copy of the application, and the contact's District Eagle Advisor. They will contact your unit's Leader who will select the Board of Review members and schedule the board. Boards of Review should have at least 3 members, but no more than 6, and a member of the District Advancement Committee. For how to conduct a Board virtually visit our Council website - Click Here

Board of Review Completed

Once the Board of Review has been completed the District Eagle Advisor will submit the application as well as an advancement report form to the Council Office. This is submitted to National and then the Eagle credentials are shipped to the Council Office. This may take longer than it has in the past, so we ask for you to be patient while we work within our current situation.

National Approval and Credentials Received

When the Credentials have been delivered to the Council office the Unit is contacted to pick them up. We recommend that you wait until this time to schedule the Court of Honor to avoid the possibility of not having the credentials in hand at the Court of Honor.

As no one will be in the office we may not receive the Eagle Credentials until regular operation is allowed in California.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your District Advancement Committee Chair.
