Eagle Palms Changes Effective Aug 1st

Posted on Sep 21 2017 - 10:05am

Just a few weeks ago we learned of changes coming quickly to the Eagle Palm program.

Beginning August 1st, Scouts having an Eagle Board of Review are also eligible to receive Eagle Palms along with their Eagle Medal.  He can receive one Palm for each 5 additional merit badges that he has earned beyond the 21 required for his Eagle rank.  You might think of this as a one-time catch-up opportunity.  This one-time does not require a Scoutmaster Conference and it takes into account merit badges earned prior to the Eagle Board of Review, including merit badges completed on that very day.

Eagle Project Request

La Tierra Early Childhood Center in Mission Viejo has asked if a Life Scout would be interested in building a backpack rack for their school.

Please share this request with your Scouts and see if any of them are interested in this as an Eagle Project.  

If they are interested or have any questions, they should contact Patsy Morris by email at

Life to Eagle Process

Posted on Sep 21 2017 - 10:06am

Last month I sent out a series of 3 emails discussing the Life to Eagle process.  These were sent to the unit Key-3. That means the Unit Leader, Committee Chair, and Chartered Organization Representative.  If you have anything to do with supporting your unit's Scouts in the Life to Eagle process and didn't see those emails, contact one of your unit's key-3 and ask them to forward you the emails.

New Eagle Rank Application Now Available

Posted on Sep 21 2017 - 10:04am

New Eagle Application

There is a NEW 2017 Version of the Eagle Scout application now available.
Beginning September 1, 2107, the previous version with the 2016 date on the back bottom right corner will no longer be accepted.  The current version is available through the Saddleback District Eagle web page at
Unfortunately, with the last application update, we had several Scouts who we had turn away after the change deadline because they were still using the 2014 application.  Please make sure to communicate this change to your Life Scouts and volunteers.
Please update any links or files that you have on your Troop sites so that they point Scouts to the Saddleback District website.
