A program designed to ensure that every Scout gets the most he can out of the Royaneh program. Scouts participate in this program by doing activities in a variety of program areas. The participation requirements become more difficult as the Scouts get older. A Scout who completes the requirements for his year will be awarded a special neckerchief. Scouts can only earn this prestigious award once a year. First year Scouts who have completed all first year requirements will be recognized at a special first year campfire Thursday night. All other Scouts will be recognized at the closing campfire Friday night. Scouts who earn the award should also stop by the Trading Post to pick up a certificate and sign the permanent scroll of Thunderbird Trail recipients. Scoutmasters will be asked to stop by the Trading Post and reimburse the camp for the award’s cost, as he would for a merit badge or other emblem.
