Eagle Scout Resources

Getting Started

Before you do anything else, download the official Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook (No. 512-927) via the link on this page. There you’ll find a rundown for planning, fundraising, executing and documenting your Eagle project.

Eagle Scout Project Requirements and Ideas

A good Eagle project should:

  • Allow you to show planning, development and leadership skills.
  • Benefit a religious institution, a school or your community. (It can’t benefit Scouting, so a project at your council camp is out.)
  • Be feasible. You’ll need to show it’s realistic for you to carry out.
  • Address safety issues. What will you do to prevent injury? What happens if someone gets hurt?

You’ll find more suggestions, tips and requirements in the official Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook.
