There's nowhere on an Eagle Scout application for the MBC names, how do they check? And if the council's official records which are in scoutnet show the merit badge what argument would they have to change it?
Even in just the basic advancement program, Scouting offers a very broad range of subject matter, from wildlife study to swimming and cycling, compass use to hand axes, cooking to first aid, and much more, before you even get to the scores of subject areas covered by merit badges and STEM awards.
You learn things that will be useful for the rest of your life, and you can become an expert in subjects that will amaze your friends and family.
In Scouts BSA and Venturing, youth learn and advance at their own pace.
You work on some things individually, some things as a team, and some things as a leader.
Achievements are immediately recognized.
There is nothing better than sitting in front of a campfire under a sky full of stars.
