For parents and Scouts to track the Scouting Experience from Lion to Eagle Scout
This app is for parents and scouts only, it is not for adult leaders to track scouts.
A Scoutbook.com log in is required and your account must either be connected to a Scout as a parent or be a youth account.
Small bug fixes in the Path to Eagle flow and parent experience. Added new award. Updated activity log abilities.
Happy birthday, Boy Scouts of America! As we celebrate this milestone in Scouting, we are also looking at how we improve the Scouting App experience for you.
The newly released 50th Anniversary EPA Award is now available in the Scouting App. Be sure to start the award and track your progress as you begin working on the requirements.
We are also improving how you can enter activity logs in the app. We are now accepting decimal values – so 0.10, 0.25, etc. – when entering miles and hours. This applies to the hiking logs, service hours, and long cruise hours. You’ll also see some small improvements to information displayed in the activity logs.
You notified us of some small bugs including the ability to dismiss the “rate us” feature and a glitch in the Path to Eagle that was removing letters of reference. We’ve fixed those for you.
Congratulations to all the new Eagle Scouts, including our first class of female Eagle Scouts! You are doing great work!
We hope you are enjoying the app and its continued improvements. Please be sure to rate us and send feedback so we know where we can enhance your experience. We look forward to all the great things you will do in Scouting!
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Hi I really enjoy the app. It’s a great place to keep it all. Before the last update you could select the adventures and click when you’ve completed each step. It’s now 50/50 if it wants to work. Most of the time it says that it’s having issues try again later.
The second thing is the notifications. You can’t click on them to read them to make them go away. So my phone always says that I have 10 notifications for this app.
Other than those 2 fixes it’s great. I love the additional awards and if those get fixed I’ll change to 5 stars. I enjoy how simple it is and how it has all his info in one app.
Needs a ton of help
As a mobile app developer and Scouter I find the quality and user experience of this app to be greatly disappointing. There are numerous bugs that inhibit my ability to gain any value from this app. When I try to view my scouts’ advancements I always get an error message stating that it is unable to fetch advancement data. The notifications are very broken. I’ve seen a badge over the app icon for months saying I have 155 unread messages, yet when I try to tap on the messages to read or dismiss them (not sure what functionality is supposed to happen there), nothing changes and messages are still marked as unread. A couple weeks ago, the badge started displaying 3, yet I still have the 155 unread messages that I can’t dismiss. Besides that, the user experience is often confusing and unintuitive. I’m at the point where I’m going to delete the app. It’s embarrassing when parents find and download this app, experience these issues and then ask unit leaders why it’s broken and when it’ll be fixed. The only advice I can give is to write their concerns in a review and hope that someone sees it some day.
This app is frustrating and provides little to no help. Feedback from another dad was that it was one of the reasons that he is probably going to not continue next year because the process is so difficult. I think he needs to work harder for his son on that but i get it. It seems like all this needs to be just a little bit easier to lead us down the path of rank advancement, activities and communication. Considering the times this app should be used to communicate at different levels Pack/troop/den/patrol/parent/committee. Additionally why can’t it be used to plan events too for the scouts. Create meal plans, schedule events and more. How about a chat feature with your den/patrol or with your pack/troop leaders. So much this could do but doesn’t. Shoot why can’t you link this to a scout store and buy badges, awards, uniforms and everything else. Make this the true e-platform fo scouting! Someone please step in and help!
