It’s right there in the Scout Oath:
“… to keep myself physically strong”
Starting this year, Boy Scouts are required to do just that if they want to advance through Scouting’s ranks.
New Boy Scout requirements that took effect on Jan. 1, 2016, put a greater emphasis on Scouts being physically active. There are new requirements at Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class that require Scouts to do what they love to do: move around a lot. The Personal Fitness merit badge, meanwhile, remains a requirement to earn the Eagle Scout rank.
Where can I find the new Boy Scout requirements?
The BSA has made it easy for you, providing this PDF straight from the new Boy Scout Handbook (which, by the way, is now available). NEW REQUIREMENTS : 524-012_bs_requirements
There’s also this requirements insert (524-012_bs_requirements), which is suitable for printing and including in a previous-generation Handbook.
Merit Badge Books – Anyone who borrowed merit badge books from the Troop Library for summer camp please return them this week. Return books directly to the Troop Librarian “Jarod D” so that he removes your name from the outstanding books list. If you have any Merit Badge Books of your own that you longer need you can donate them to the Troop Library.
