Scout Tracker

Scout Tracker tracks Boy Scout advancements towards their Eagle Scout. Scouts can monitor their camping nights, service hours, and leadership. Scoutmasters can let the boys know about incomplete requirements without affecting advancement records. Worksheets created for the scouts are stored in a database for easy view and hide access. Scouts can view the progress of all scouts to enable them to find other scouts who need to work on the same requirement or merit badge. Only leaders and administrators can change data on the site. The best part is that parents and scouts can access their information anytime they want without having to call the Scoutmaster.
