2016 Holiday Eagle Processing

Eagle verifications: Eagle applications will be verified up to December 15th. Scouts may still submit applications for verification after that date, but they are not guaranteed to have their applications verified before the end of the year.

Final Processing (post- BoR): Scouts may continue to submit their applications for final processing after their board although these applications may not be processed until after January 1, 2017. As always, the Scouts are considered Eagle Scouts as of their board of review date (just not official until recognized by National). To be considered as part of the Eagle class of 2016, a Scout must have his board on or before December 31st and submit the signed original application and copy of the project workbook to the Fickett Center for final processing on or before January 13, 2017.

If a Scout wants to have his credentials back in time for a court of honor during the holidays, then he should have a board of review and submit his final paperwork by November 15th.  Final paperwork submitted after November 15th is not guaranteed to be available for pick up until after the first of the year. Since final processing takes 2-3 weeks, we cannot guarantee credentials will arrive back before the holidays to anyone submitting their final paperwork after November 15th.

This is the web site for scouts, parents and adult volunteers in the Waterloo District, Austin, Texas. The web site provides information on the Waterloo scouting program and on who to contact if you do not find the information you need. Para informacion en Espanol,

The Waterloo District is one of thirteen geographic subdivisions in the Capitol Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America which serves the youth in 15 counties in Central Texas. Our boundaries are approximately Austin ISD east of Interstate 35 and all of the Manor ISD and Del Valle ISD We also serve some AISD schools north of St. Johns Avenue and west of Interstate 35. 

  • The Waterloo District has scouting programs for boys ages 6 to 21 and for girls ages 14 to 21.
  • The program is primarily organized by grade in school, but for some purposes age rather than grade determines the type of unit the scout joins.
  • Scouts 14 and over may be members of a Boy Scout troop while also at the same time being part of a Venture crew, Varsity team or Explorer post.

If you want to join a scout unit, contact us and we will help you find a unit. For questions about Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, other types of scout units, contact our District Executive Brian Zits at brian.zits@scouting.org
