Program Overview

This is an abbreviated version view the full program overview on the Trail Life USA site.

For K-5th grade boys, ranks are by a 2-year grouping called a Patrol (Fox, Hawk, & Mtn. Lion). A boy has 2 years to complete his requirements along with his Worthy Life Award for that rank. Requirements are prorated based on when a boy joins the Patrol. At the completion of each 2 year/grade rank, a boy is advanced to the next group.

K-1st Join as Fox
2nd-3rd Join as Hawk
4th-5th Join as Mtn. Lion

6th-12th Grade Boys Join as Recruit

For 6th-12th grade boys, rank advancement is based on the completion of requirements for skill training called Trail Badges (both required and elective), service time, leadership time, and the completion of a Troop master’s Conference and a Board of Review. All ranks and merit badges previously attained within Boy Scouts may be transferable. Please read Achievement Transfer from BSA to Trail Life USA PDF for more information.

Joining Requirements
