    Advancement

    The District Advancement Program provides youth and adults the knowledge they need to have a quality unit advancement program. We counsel and train leadership on record keeping, merit badge counseling and requirements for becoming an Eagle Scout.

    All advancement inquires should be directed to our Advancement Chairperson, Greg Holt, 303.369.9934

    The Advancement Committee consists of the following Volunteers and are empowered to approve all Eagle Scout Service Projects and are the only approved Council/District Representative on any Frontier District Eagle Scout Board of Review. In Frontier District, Eagle Board of Review will be held at the unit level with one required Frontier District Advancement Committee member per the Guide of Advancement and DAC Advancement Committee Policy.

    Eagle Scout

    After earning the rank of Life you should begin the process of working on your Eagle. Begin by going to the Scout Office and asking for a print out of your records to confirm all of your previously earned badges. While there pick up an Eagle Packet.

    All advancement inquires should be directed to our Advancement Chairperson, Greg Holt, 303.369.9934
