Eagle Scout Court of Honor - ECOH

In November of 2018, I finished posting my 3 Part Eagle Mentoring series. Here is the 4th part of that for leaders and mentors. Quite simply it's time to plan a celebration of your new Eagle Scouts achievement. There are many people to thank for helping the Scout along the trail to Eagle. This is completely optional, however not taking time to properly thank those involved, is contrary to the beliefs found in the Scout Law. 

Basic Eagle Court of Honor (ECOH) Outline

The ceremony can be as elaborate or simple as your family chooses.  There is a small amount of traditional structure to this event. The only part that is "set in stone" is the Eagle Charge wording. 

  • Invocation
  • Flag Ceremony
  • Introductions
  • Ceremony Presentation 
  • The Eagle Charge*
  • Parents/Guardians Eagle Presentation and Pinning
  • Eagle Scout "Thank You" Speech
  • Benediction
  • Closing Ceremony

* The wording of the Eagle Charge may not be altered or changed in any way.

The ECOH is primarily for your family and friends. In many cultures, we celebrate the transition from boyhood to manhood with elaborate ceremonies. It is appropriate to use this achievement in this regard for our modern lifestyle. Keeping the ceremony’s events in a simple format will help you achieve a successful ECOH. The Eagle Scout’s parents are the primary organizers of the ECOH. The Eagle Scout is there as the focal point and may often feel he’s left out of the planning. This is a major photo opportunity for family and dear friends. It is appropriate to expect gifts and cards from attendees. Scouting displays and food/desserts/refreshments are completely optional. Some simple ECOH's are completed within a half-hour, however, most take an hour or more to complete. There are alternative ECOH scripts and themes available throughout the Internet (see links below) and in several books published on the subject. Most ECOH is conducted independently, however combining this with other Eagle Scouts ECOH is not uncommon. Keep in mind that location and the troop’s calendar should be referenced before committing to a date and place.
