Welcome to the Knot Master Program!

This program was designed to encourage Scouts to learn the names, uses, classifications of, and how to tie knots often used in Scouting. The full set of rules can be found here.

A Scout’s mastery of a set of knots is tested by a Knot Master or Scouter to advance through each level.

A loop of colored rope is used to identify a Scout’s current level in the program. It is a part of their Class A uniform.

Scouts who forget their rope may be assigned extra tasks by the highest-ranking Knot Master.

Scouts challenge each other to make sure they still know their rank’s knots.

Troop adults and Scouters may also participate in the program.
