Information, procedures & guidance on Advancement from both Occoneechee Council & B.S.A. National are being updated to reflect the current coronavirus situation on a regular basis. The links below are current as of the morning of 26-March, 2020:
N.B: The Eagle Desk and the Scout Shop are now closed while the no person-to-person contact directive is in effect. AS a result, it is not possible to hand-deliver a completed Eagle packet at the moment. Scouts with a completed Eagle packet would be advised to hold it until the situation changes.
