Rank Advancement is the first process Scouting uses to develop character, citizenship, personal fitness, and leadership within a scout. The majority of advancement requirements will be completed with the troop at meetings or outings. Tenderfoot Rank exposes the Scout to the basics of Scouting character, knot tying, camping skills, and person fitness. All of these requirements can be completed at troop meetings and/or a campout. As a Scout progresses, some steps may need to be completed at home. All requirements are listed in the Scout Handbook. As a scout participates in outings, these need to be listed in the handbook for Second Class and First Class Rank requirements (see pages 75 and 126). As a boy learns certain skills and fulfills requirements, he receives awards and goes up in rank, which is reflected by new patches on his uniform, instantly recognizable by other scouts.
