slow down in Advancement Resources Posted September 12, 2018 After this camp out he will be ready for his 1st class SMC and BOR. He will then be looking to get an aproved POR. He has 17 nights of camping and has 8 MB (4 eagle required). My original question work itself out last night. We have an active troop and he's excited about helping the rest of his patrol enjoy as they advance. I see where some say advancement shouldn't be the main goal and they're right. He love looking at the requirements and figuring which ones can be done one his trips.
