Purchasing Advancement and Awards

Some of the rank and advancement (Advancement Form) patches and insignia available for purchase in the Scout Shop are restricted.  This means they cannot be purchased freely by the general public and a hard copy, signed advancement form is required for them to be obtained.  This is normally the task of the unit advancement chair.

Unit advancement personnel can fax or email their advancement reports and supply needs and we can have the order pulled and ready for your pick-up.  Please allow 24 hours for processing.
