Outdoor Adventure Skills

For the OAS badges, youth progress through the levels from Beavers, to Cubs, to Scouts, to Venturers. Our estimations for the youth is Level 1 and 2 for Beavers, Level 2 to 3 for Cubs, and 3-5 for Scouts. But please prove us wrong and overachieve!!

The Scouts Tracker can be used to help keep track of the youth's skills.
