This is your one stop shop for scouting resources, such as advancement and awards, recharter information, and various forms and resources to help you along your Scouting journey.
Advancement & Awards
Boy Scouting provides a series of surmountable obstacles and steps in overcoming them through the advancement method. The Boy Scout plans his advancement and progresses at his own pace as he meets each challenge. The Boy Scout is rewarded for each achievement, which helps him gain self-confidence. The steps in the advancement system help a Boy Scout grow in self-reliance and in the ability to help others. The Bay Area Council is excited to offer Internet advancement as well!
The Bay Area Council offers Internet Rechartering for your unit. This method for rechartering will make the whole process easier because you’ll be completing the charter renewal information yourself which ensures that it will be correct and you can do it from your home or office, anytime that it’s convenient for you.
