Tenderfoot 6th Grade
or above
This is the first rank achieved as a Boy Scout. One key requirement is preparing for and experiencing an overnight camping trip, including pitching a tent and helping cook a meal. Another required activity is to show improvement in physical performance (push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, etc.) over a 30-day period. Other requirements at this level are being able to identify poisonous plants and demonstrate various first aid procedures.
Second Class 7th Grade
or above
The Tenderfoot Scout is now ready to explore more of the world. Second Class Badge requirements will help prepare him. Activities include learning how to use a compass and map, more campouts, tool safety and building a campfire. The Scout also begins community service projects, demonstrates water safety and rescue methods and more advanced first aid procedures.
First Class 8th Grade
or above
Becoming a First Class Scout prepares the Scout to be more of a leader in his patrol, his troop and in the community. Planning a patrol menu for one campout — including which pans, utensils and other gear will be needed to cook and serve the meals — is a key requirement at this level. So is passing the BSA Swimmer Test — a test of safety as well as knowledge of several swimming strokes and techniques.
