Advancement is the process by which youth members of the Boy Scouts of America progress from rank to rank in the Scouting program. A fundamental principal of advancement in Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts, and Venturing is the growth a young person achieves as a result of his/her participation in unit programs. Advancement tracking is primarily handled through BSA’s FREE mobile web application, Scoutbook. If you have any Scoutbook questions or need support, please send an email to Scoutbook.Support@scouting.org for assistance.
Merit Badge University
Merit Badge University (MBU) is a one-day event that gives Scouts the opportunity to earn merit badges ranging from recreational activities to Eagle Scout prerequisites.
You will need your unit BSA ID number to get started. If you have questions or issues, please contact our certified registrar, Melissa Moore, by email at email@example.com or by phone at 210-341-8611 Ext. 101.
PLEASE NOTE: The Musselman Scout Shop needs either Internet Advancement advancement report or ScoutBook advancement report (even viewed digitally on your phone) to purchase any restricted badges (ranks, merit badges, etc). Replacement badges can be verified in ScoutBook.
