The Court of Honor

All Scouts should know that there are 4 steps to advancement. A Scout learns, is tested, is reviewed and is recognized. The Court of Honor, or COH, is the opportunity for the Troop to recognize and celebrate scouts for all their hard work. The Troop aims to conduct 4 COH's per year.
