  1. Am I the only one that the advertisement is blocking 1/2 the video display? I get this on Apple (ipad and MacBook), several winpc’s (WIN7&8)and phones. I also have tried IE (8 and up), Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Any suggestions?

    I wish I knew about these videos two years ago when I joined. I could have been 1st class right now instead of 2nd.

  20. hey i got a merit badge while a weblo and patroll leader

  21. Our troop just had our Court of Honor and I just got Tenderfoot. It’s so cool, I didn’t even expect to get to Tenderfoot this fast.

  22. I just joined scouts and am working twords Tenderfoot this helped so much

  23. I really love these videos Iam now a First Class scout. All I need is four months till star. six until life and a nother six until our beloved EAGLE SCOUT RANK. THANK YOU!

  24. Thank you for these videos. I finally know how to orient a darn map

  25. these videos really helped so far on my ranks. I’m going for second class this monday,thanks for the videos.

  26. I think that you should not only have the first three rank requirement videos, but also make videos for Star, Life, and, Eagle!

    • Videos for star life and eagle wouldn’t work because they are mostly just merit badges and leadership. However, eagle required merit badges would make good videos…

  27. Really helpful. I sign off a lot of things. Become tenderfoot in one day. (kidding)

  28. Really helpful…had seen it before but couldn’t find it for a while…wish they’d have put it in a more prominent place

  29. do you have to do do the yell
