Purchasing Scouts BSA Awards and Advancement

When Advancement Reports are Needed

Advancement Reports are needed for puchasing Ranks and Merit Badges.

Advancement Reports are made by using Scoutbook or Internet Advancement 2.0 programs. Each Troop should have one person identified to enter the advancement online.

Troops Outside the Anchorage / MatSu Area

Troops who are not located in the Anchorage / MatSu area may email their order, along with an Advancement Report, if needed, to the Scout Store Manager. The Scout Shop will mail your advancement / awards to you, shipping charges will apply. Please call the Scout Shop to confirm they received your email and to make arrangements for payment. 

Scout Shop Accounts

Some Troops have chosen to deposit money in the Anchorage Scout Shop to be used to cover future store purchases or registration fees. Call the Scout Shop Manager if you have any questions.
