Do you have a project that you need help with, maybe we can help. We are always looking at ways to help out our community. By helping out our community our scouts will earn service hours while building a stronger relationship with those in the community and gain leadership and other needed skills that will help them succeed.

Projects can be anything from leading a flag ceremony for a community or school event helping to clean up and remove debris from a park or other social gathering area. Helping with a food drive or even stuffing eggs for an Easter egg hunt.

If you have a project that we might be able to help with, please feel free to contact us for with information and time frame. We can't guarantee that we can help everyone out, but we can do our best.

Service Projects

Second Class Rank. For the Second Class Rank, a Scout must participate in a service projector projects approved by his Scoutmaster. The time of service must be a minimum of one hour. This project prepares a Scout for the more involved service projects he must perform for the Star, Life, and Eagle Scout Ranks.

Star and Life Ranks. For Star and Life ranks, a Scout must perform six hours of service to others. This may be done as an individual project or as a member of a patrol or troop project. Star and Life service projects may be approved for Scouts assisting on Eagle service projects. The Scoutmaster approves the project before it is started.

Eagle Scout Rank. For a service project to qualify as an Eagle Scout service project, the Scout, while a Life Scout, must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project benefiting any religious institution, school, or community. These projects, of course, must conform to the wishes and regulations of those for whom the project is undertaken.

The Eagle Scout service project provides the opportunity for the Eagle Scout candidate to demonstrate the leadership skills he has learned in Scouting. He does the project outside the sphere of Scouting.

As a demonstration of leadership, the Scout must plan the work, organize the personnel needed, and direct the project to its completion.

Service to others is important. Work involving council property or other BSA activities is not acceptable for an Eagle Scout service project. The service project also may not be performed for a business, or be of a commercial nature, or be a fund-raiser.
