Rank and Award Projects

Executive Director Congratulates Eagle Scout on Childrens Trail ProjectWe are happy to work with Boy Scouts to help attain Star, Life and Eagle Scout ranks and with Girl Scouts to attain Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. If you would like to work on your award with RHA, please contact us with some ideas about the sort of project you would like to complete. You should assure that you have ample time to complete the project (please consider the date you must achieve your award by as well as the season in which you hope to complete it). We will offer technical advice and guidance and work with you on your project plan. To that end, we strictly adhere to award guidelines and expect that each youth involved will develop a clear, concise plan and follow through with their objectives. If your proposal does not show feasibility, there is a chance it may not be approved. We want your project to be a positive experience and look forward to hearing your ideas!

To help you get started, here are some examples of successful rank and award projects that have been completed with the Raritan Headwaters Association.

  • Wildlife Blind
  • Children’s Trail
  • Guided Trail

Please contact RHA’s Director of Stewardship and Education Lauren Theis at ltheis@raritanheadwaters.org for more information or to propose a project.
