I have the honor of selecting a gift from our Troop for two well deserving Eagle Scouts.  Their Eagle Court of Honor will be here shortly. There are many items we have considered as a troop gift to the new Eagle Scouts.  The troop used to purchase the cake for their Eagel Court of Honor, but the adults of the troop wanted to give the Eagle Scouts something they could take with them on their journey through life.

We started looking around and found many items to ponder.  Here a just a few that we looked at.

  1. Thank you so much for this list. Becoming an Eagle Scout is such an honor and such a momentous occasion in a young person’s life. It is definitively something that needs to be celebrated and commemorated. But it is hard to think what a good gift would be, this list makes the decision so easy. These are all great – thank you for the suggestions.

  2. I love the BSA Buck knife and free engraving make it a great gift. The forever warranty is a fantastic selling point as well. My son was in scouts for years, never quite made to Eagle Scout, but he really learned a lot and the experience was great for him. We did a lot of great outdoor activities, camping, hiking trips, etc. Those are some of my very fondest memories as a father. Thanks for sharing this post.

    1. Hi Steve, So happy to hear you had some great memories created in scouts. I have made some great memories and friendships as well. I hope you found the post useful. Irene

  3. Wow! It reminds me of my childhood as a boy scout. Love the Eagle Coin Knife though it’s a little pricey, yet it would be great to support the future of scouting. Time to give back for what we’ve taken decades ago.
