I'm an Eagle Scout as well. I finished about two years ago in Troop 27 from Springfield Illinios.

Again, congrats on your accomplishment.

Eagle scout with bronze and silver palm. Would have had gold as well if the counselor for my final merit badge wasn't such a jack ass.

This is surprising. I thought I was one of the few people involved in the Boy Scouts here.

I got my Eagle the day after I turned 18. The only thing I had to do was the board of review and we scheduled that before I was 18. I cut it way too close.

My project involved the construction and transportation of heavy wooden benches to two campsites about 1/2 a mile north of Gathland State Park on the Appalachian Trail. If you're ever hiking on the AT it's worth checking out. Watch out for random drunks with guns though. When the kids were hiking the benches in one of the campsites had some random drunk guys with guns. I don't spend too much time around there so I have no idea how common that is.

Make sure the top of your gun is parallel to the ground when firing.
Finish those other mods so I have something else to read on here.

Do something that can involve children and mothers, because then you won't have any difficulty getting help from volunteers.

My scoutmaster was very involved in the Appalachian Trail so he suggested a good local project right away. Lucky for some of my friends there were multiple spots that needed benches so they just copied my project.

Try asking at local parks about anything that needs to be done. If my scoutmaster was less than helpful that's what I would have done. My brother made a new trail head after asking a local state or county park about any work that needs to be done. It was a very straightforward project. We were done in a matter of hours.

Both of our projects involved power tools. If you use power tools, you will need some adult help, but expect most of your help to be kids. Design the project around that as CS said.

I hear you on that. My BoR was two days before my 18th birthday. I knew I had to nail it the first time.



I am life and am trying to think of eagle project ideas.Another question, how many of you were patrol leaders, my patrols name was The Desert Camo Patrol. We had to order special patches that were like $9 each. Anyway, suggestions for a project I should do?

I was a Patrol Leader, then Troop Quartermaster, then Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and finally Senior Patrol Leader. (I was also a Den Chief for my little brother's Cub Scout den for three years, and an Assistant Scoutmaster for two years after I turned 18.)

I was in several different Patrols over time, but my favorite was the "Skeleton Patrol". We were so named because, at the time, our Troop had been reduced to three boys - myself, my older brother, and the Scoutmaster's son - with my father as the Assistant Scoutmaster. So we were a "skeleton crew" - hence the name. Our patrol flag had a skeleton on it, and we always had fun explaining that it wasn't just to be "dark" or "cool" - it was a humorous name for one of the darkest times in our Troop's history. (Really, all of the older guys had moved on, and we just weren't getting any feed from our two Cub Scout Packs - all of the boys were just more interested in sports for some odd reason, and didn't want to do both.)

We eventually grew out of that slump, and there were about 30 boys in the Troop when I was SPL.

As far as your Eagle Project goes, I can tell you what I did for mine. I went to my church's Pastor & deacon board and asked what needed done around the church that could constitute a large enough project. They suggested a few things, but what I keyed in on was building a full set of wooden storage shelves to replace the rickety aluminum shelving in the utility room. It was a fairly large undertaking and took several weeks and about a half-dozen volunteers to finish. It wasn't the largest or most ambitious project, but it worked and was a great benefit to my church community. Those shelves are still there 12 years later, and show few signs of wear and no sign of needing any repairs yet - we did the job right the first time.

So anyway, just check with any organization you might be affiliated with and see what kind of projects they might like help with. You can often get them to fund the materials quite easily if you are providing enough free volunteer labor.

I was in OA back in the day. Great fun and a good feeling of accomplishment working on service projects at the local Scout Camp (Camp Chief Little Turtle in northern Indiana). I was also on a Ceremony Team and competed at a regional Conclave. Didn't place, but it was great fun.

I got my project done a week after my 17th birthday, and took another year to finish the last of the badges. On the weekend before my 18th I was running around getting my final requirements for Personal Fitness and Emergency Preparedness signed off. But damn, was I glad that my project was done.

My dad's an Eagle scout an I think I learned enough from him.

We camped a lot when I was 7-10 so I probably know a decent amount of Boy Scout stuff.

Did anyone have Big Gay Al as a scoutmaster?

I am in OA, pretty fun acheivment. The hardest thing I ever did in scouts was shotgun merit badge. I am a small guy( 14 years old and still under 100 pounds and under 5 ft). When I got there they ran out of ammo for all the small guns so I had to use a 12 gauge pump action long barrelled shotgun, man that thing kicked like a mule. I had a bruise on my shoulder for 4 weeks. I got the badge though. hit 18 out of 25 clay pidgions on my first time with a shotgun( thank you nintendo duckshot)
