Eagle Scout Award Program

Eagle Scout Award Program

For decades, Eagle Scouts have delivered hundreds of improvement projects to benefit the Allegheny County Parks. Project examples include wheelchair ramps to facilities, bridges over creeks, benches, a solar panel installation, trail mapping and trail blazes. Boy Scouts have long been involved with the County Parks using park facilities for meetings and campouts. Boy Scout cabins are located in North Park and South Park.

As a requirement for a Scout to become an Eagle Scout, he must complete an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project.  The Eagle Scout is responsible to plan, organize, raise funds, lead, and manage his project to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community. Boyce Park is named after the founder of the Boy Scouts of America, William D. Boyce.

The Eagle Scout Award Program is a reimbursement award for project expenses up to $175 and $25 to purchase the Eagle Scout Award Kit.  To be considered for a reimbursement award, the scout must follow the procedure and complete the application.
