The ranks go in the order of Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. Scout is the first rank you can earn and you usually earn it when you first join the troop. Eagle is the last rank you earn and it takes a lot of work to reach. When you reach the rank of Eagle, a ceremony is held to celebrate your earning of Eagle. As said in the Troop Meetings section, we have Rank Advancement every other week. During this period of time, older scouts work with younger scouts to help them advance in the ranks. This is also when older scouts are given the opportunity to meet with a leader to get a requirement for a merit badge signed off.
