Description

The Eagle court of honor is Scouting’s greatest moment, the moment Scouts will remember long into adulthood. But what will they remember? An off-the-rack script? A thrown-together ceremony? A parade of long-winded speakers? Or an event that truly honors this unique achievement?

Now in a revised and expanded fourth edition, the book is better than ever, drawing on lessons learned in countless courts of honor and reflecting the inclusion of girls in Scouts BSA troops.

  • Original inspirational pieces
  • 20 pages of charges, poems, and quotations
  • 9 planning checklists
  • Inexpensive props you can make
  • Support job descriptions
  • The history of the Scouting’s highest rank

    The Eagle Court of Honor Book is a wonderful source of information: planning tips, themed ceremonies, and Scouting segments to mix and match to create a unique celebration of your Eagle’s accomplishments. I was thankful to have this resource available in our troop’s library when we were preparing our son’s ceremony. I am now the Scoutmaster for a newly organized girl troop with Scouts BSA. I look forward to planning our first Eagle ceremony utilizing the new edition that will honor these young women, just as it has for so many young men throughout the years.

    Mark Ray has done it again! This edition of The Eagle Court of Honor Book is an outstanding resource.

    Mark’s decades of experience in Scouting shows in both the historical materials and the up-to-date features of this book.

    It will be useful for both seasoned Scouters (who may need a new ideas to create a fresh new personalized feel for Eagle Ceremonies) and for people who have just joined Scouting (who will benefit from the step-by-step checklists and detailed instructions for making one-of-a-kind ceremonies that will appeal to everyone).

    Be prepared to be inspired — with the large collection of quotes, poems and scripts that highlight the importance of the Eagle Scout rank and the benefit of Scouting to the U.S.

    I’ve read scores of Scouting ceremony books over the years and this one stands out as the one that will be at the top of my go-to list when it’s time to put together the next Eagle Scout ceremony.

    The same wisdom, experience, and knowledge that Mark Ray brought to writing the 14th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook is evident in the newest edition of The Eagle Court of Honor Book.

    Both practical and inspirational, The Eagle Court of Honor Book is an essential resource for all who work with Scouts BSA advancement. For troops that may have fallen into a “tried and true” routine, there are many ideas that can be used to upgrade, tweak, or otherwise rejuvenate current practices.

    For newer units – with no institutional knowledge of what might be included in an Eagle Court of Honor – there are full scripts, leading the organizers from conception to planning to implementation of a high quality court of honor that honors the recipient and what the award stands for.

    Mark is a clear writer who knows what he is talking about. As a veteran Scout leader, I appreciate his ability to connect with highly experienced leaders as well as brand new leaders and successfully answer questions that they did not even know they had.

    A great read and a great resource.
