Board of Review Questions

Questions are asked according to the rank the Scout is earning.

When running a BOR the adult committee will ask the Scout a series of questions:

  • Icebreaker – designed to be easy, noncommittal questions to relax the Scout.
  • Scoutcraft – designed to reinforce what the Scout has learned by giving him an opportunity to talk about what he has done (first campout experience, how to whip a rope etc.).
  • Feedback – These questions provide the Scout with an opportunity to express his opinions on the Troop program.
  • Scout Spirit – This is a great opportunity for the BOR committee to ask questions of the Scout and help him grow. A sample question for a Tenderfoot is “ What does it mean to do your best?”
