One of the hallmarks of scouting is the advancement process. Each scout advances through scouting at their own progress going through, and achieving, requirements as they go along. Some ranks require learning, and displaying, basic scout skills, while others need specific badges. Troop 97 has worked with scouts for many years to advance their scouting knowledge and move forward with the program.
