Changing a boy scout to a adult scout

How in scout book do you move a scout from a scout to an adult position when they age out without losing all their information

Hi, Michele,

You have to send an email to scoutbook.support@scouting.org to request that the account be converted.

There’s a how-to here:
https://help.scoutbook.com/knowledge-base/migrating-scouts-from-youth-to-adult-leader-roster/

The scout must be connected to the account (i.e. actively able to log-in to Scoutbook and see the account) so that the account can safely be converted to an adult.

Make sure that:

  • all awards have been approved, marked awarded, and recorded by council,
  • all payment logs are zeroed-out, and
  • all

If the Scout is in, or planning to join, a Venturing Crew or Sea Scout Ship they should not convert their account to Adult, as they will loose the ability to track in a Crew or Ship.

It happened automatically for our recent youth when their adult application was processed by Council.
