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.  Click the links below for each merit badge to see when and where it will be offered along with the cost to participate.  All pre-requisites are listed at the bottom of the page.  Please make sure you complete what you need to before the badge so you can get signed off on that day.  If you have any questions please contact Bobby Rabbitt - Benjamin Tallmadge Senior District Executive for more information.
