Merit Badge Program

Suffolk County Council is excited to bring a year long merit badge program to the Boy Scouts.  Through this program we will be partnering with various organizations and companies to offer unique merit badge opportunities. 

Please read the following policies and information:

1.  Every boy needs to bring the merit badge manual and a signed blue card with him to each merit badge.  The counselors and locations have a limited number of extra blue cards.  If your son does not bring his own card and the counselor does not have extras your son will not be able to get credit for the class.

2.  Registration and prerequisite information is listed on each individual merit badge page.

3.  Scouts should be in full uniform for each class unless otherwise stated.


If you have any questions please contact Bobby Rabbitt - Benjamin Tallmadge Senior District Executive for more information.
