Eagle Boards of Review

Eagle Boards are generally the fourth Thursday of each month, except for November and December due to the holidays.

In order for an Eagle Candidate to have his or her Eagle Board in a given month, their paperwork must be submitted electronically by the first day of the month following the process outlined. Then he or she will need to submit a physical binder or equivalent to the Palo Alto Scout office, 1305 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto, by the second Friday of the month.
