Advancement reports from Scoutbook are accepted at Scout Shops.
The Scoutbook database is the official record of advancement for the Boy Scouts of America.
All units in our council have been set up in Scoutbook to track advancement and to print reports when ordering badges and patches from the Scout Shop. If you do not have access to your account, please contact Marian McQuaid.
