Scoutbook is the BSA web portal that makes tracking advancement easier and faster. Scoutbook links individual Scout advancement records directly to the BSA National advancement database. This means more time for leaders and Scouts to enjoy those life-changing experiences they can only get from Scouting. The Glacier’s Edge Council strongly encourages all our units to utilize this powerful tool. Scoutbook strengthens every unit scouting program by enhancing leadership efficiency for tracking and recording advancements and facilitating other unit operations.
