Eagle Scout Projects
To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. One of these requirements is your demonstration of leadership skills. You do so by planning and carrying out an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project.
Looking to do an Eagle Scout Project? We can work with you to develop a great leadership opportunity. Lake Katherine needs help with building benches, boardwalks, bridges and more.
