Eagle Scout Extension for new 2019 Scouts in Issues & Politics Posted October 4, 2018 2 minutes ago, walk in the woods said: Ok. So a girl joins on Feb 1 and turns 18 on Feb 2, 2019. Same question. That would seem to be the perfect case for a full 2-year extension. As for your previous question about whether they stay in the troop while age 19 and 20, how is it handled NOW when a Scout is given an extension past his 18th birthday? I do not know the answer to that question. We had one Scout who was given until his 19th birthday to make Eagle due to severe physical disabilities. Until he made Eagle (which actually was 4 or 5 months before he turned 19) he was treated as a Scout for all purposes. Whether that was correct under National policy, I don’t know. And this was about 12 years ago, so the application of YP rules may be different today than it was then. i think these are things that can be worked out.
