BSA Ranks

Troop 200 follows the standard BSA Rank and merit badge program which consists of the ranks of Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life and Eagle.  The initial ranks of Scout through First Class focus on ensuring the Scout is familiar with many of the skills closely associated with boy scouts – how to tie knots, light a fire, identify plants and animals, set up a tent, and cook over a fire.  These ranks also start to cultivate characteristics of service, citizenship and reverence.  As the Scout moves on to the ranks of Star, Life and Eagle, the focus moves to the completion of merit badges, demonstrating leadership, and providing and eventually leading service activities.
